AMBER Alerts Now Available on Twitter

On January 13, 2014, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children(NCMEC) announced the launch of an AMBER Alert Twitter account to allow 49 million users nationwide to receive AMBER Alerts using the handle@AMBERAlert. This announcement comes on AMBER Alert Awareness Day, which recognizes the AMBER Alert program of urgent bulletins to assist in the search for and rescue of abducted children. The alerts are distributed by media, transportation agencies, the wireless industry, Internet service providers, the trucking industry, and others. OJJDP administers the national training and technical assistance program, which expands and enhances the national AMBER Alert network; increases and improves law enforcement response to missing, endangered, and abducted children; creates greater community capacity in understanding broader issues related to exploitation and abuse of children; and enhances public participation in the recovery of missing, endangered, and abducted children. To that end, OJJDP works closely with NCMEC and other key partners.
