Amber Alert Awareness


I give you this post today because you care about your community and you are interested in doing whatever you can to make a difference.

Yesterday was Amber Alert Awareness Day. Since its creation in 1996, the AMBER Alert program has helped to find and safely recover 495 abducted children. Today all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have AMBER Alert plans. There is a unique tool available for you to receive Amber Alerts directly to your cell phone. Sign up today and help us save an abducted child in the future. Go to: www.wirelessamberalerts.org

It is a fantastic program as the 495 success stories that you mention show.

I always read the Amber Alerts on the side of the road...a very awesome program. I also hear "Amber alert" often because my name is Amber ha!

Officer McCoy,
I was curious if you knew if HPD would be offering another academy date after the May date.

As a member of the family of the most recent Amber alert (january 2010) i love this program but had no idea of it at the time just last week. Making things worse was the fac that the amber alert issued in out case was NOT posted on the street signs as others where in past years bcs it was not issued by Officials in Austin...would have help as the girls had crossed the state line over to OHIO....
