Amber Alert Program
The AMBER Alert Program, named for nine-year-old Amber Hagerman, is a voluntary partnership between law enforcement agencies, broadcasters and transportation agencies to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child abduction cases. Broadcasters use the Emergency Alert System (EAS) to air a description of the abducted child, suspected abductor and any suspected vehicle involved.
The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and safe recovery of the child.
