The Texas Department of Public Safety says it has saved 600 children during traffic stops as part of its Interdiction for the Protection of Children (IPC) program training. 

The interdiction program teaches officers how to recognize indicators that a child is a victim or at risk of becoming a victim.

The program also teaches officers to spot a child that may be under threat of abduction, human trafficking and sexual assault.

Training troopers in the IPC program started in 2009 and uses different approaches  to train law enforcement, prosecutors, criminal intelligence analysts, child protective services, victim services, and child advocacy center professionals, 

 More than 13,000 people across the U.S. and other countries have been trained under the program.
