The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is encouraging State of Florida employees to sign-up to receive AMBER and Missing Child Alerts.
During 2013, Florida law enforcement agencies received 35,124 reports of missing children, and FDLE’s Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse provided direct assistance in the recovery of 91 missing children last year.
“When a child is missing, public awareness is key,” said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. “I encourage citizens to sign up to receive Missing Child and AMBER Alerts. You could be crucial to helping law enforcement find a missing child.”
Citizens can sign up to receive free AMBER and Missing Child Alerts by email or text message at www.missingchildrenalert.com.
