Wireless Amber Alerts

What is the Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative?

The national Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative is a voluntary partnership between the wireless industry, the United States Department of Justice, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), to distribute AMBER Alerts to wireless subscribers who opt in to receive the messages and are able to receive text messages on their wireless devices.

The first three hours after a child's abduction are the most critical to recovery efforts. This statistic was the driving force behind the creation of the AMBER alerts program, an early response system that began in 1997 using radio as its primary delivery method. The program has helped reunite more than 260 children with their families.
