The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and their Mascot, Clicky, will be there to promote their message about on-line safety. The U.S. Secret Service will also be on hand to prepare child ID kits. Federal, state and local law enforcement partners will be promoting an anti-drug and anti-gang message, along with their iconic mascot McGruff the Crime Dog.
