It's a quote from the drama Manifest

-They've got an ECT team on site. They're canvassing the neighborhood.

-They'll focus on the family first. Monitor the situation and report back.

There was a little boyo got missing and the police sent an ECT team to look around the neighborhood.

I checked ECT online and got the answer Electroconvulsive therapy ... Is that the meaning here? Cause I don't think it's some kind of medical team here.

    We say "who went missing" not "who got missing". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jan 22 '19 at 13:51
  • This kind of question would be better to ask on Movies & TV SE. – user3169 Jan 22 '19 at 22:58

I had to look up Manifest; the Wikipedia entry indicates that it takes place in and around New York City.

I am a non-enforcement employee of the NYPD. ECT is an abbreviation for Evidence Collection Team; there is a useful summary of the ECT’s role in the Wikipedia entry on NYPD Organization (and the rest of the Wikipedia entry is useful for understanding the structure of the Department in most NYC-based ‘cop shows’).
