I seen it with my own eyesI am a recovering runaway, I am now 17 and when I was 12-15 on and off I was a runaway. The police does not have high intrest in looking for runaways from what I seen in exspeirence. Yet they do have intrest in runaways on a certain level. I Feel as if the police worries more about drugs, sex and viloence before they think about the trouble a suffering teen is going through before the thought ever procceed in a child head about running away. If they care more about what abused children and teens have to say then maybe their wouldn't be all of the runaways that have be occurring.

You can study criminal justice in any state and prepare for a police career in Georgia or elsewhere. But in order to become a certified police officer in Georgia, you will have to attend and complete a police academy in Georgia.

Well, they never look that hard. The Police tend not to look for runaways and is not really much of a priority for them, but usually the longest they will look is 30 days. Now, if someone a police officer finds you're a runaway they will report you, but they don't really look that long. How hard do they look? Not "that" hard in the beggining, but they don't really even look at all later on. Ofcouse, like i said if you show up they'll take you, but other than that... Believe me, I know. I've ranaway before.

Apparently Iin the year 2002 52390 police reports were filed

About The Runaways (a band)

Yes and no, all runaway children once reported go into a national computer base that is available to all law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. However they do not actively look for runaways. Although, age is always a consideration. Police are always looking, but are more preoccupied with more serious crimes and offenses that need their attention and this is true in most of the US. There are some non profit organizations that specialize in locating and returning runaway children nationwide and at not cost.

Well, chances are that runaways in the US have more resources than runaways around the world. They have shelters, stores,cars {in some cases} and a home usually. They actually have things to take with them too, unless your talking about the severly poor runaways in hope of a better life.

In the state of Minnesota, a child is considered to be a runaway if they are under age 18 and do not have their parents or guardians permission to leave the home. The parents can call the police and the police may issue the runaway a citation to appear in court.

You need to contact your local police or an attorney.
