AMBER Alert in Indian Country 101 – Law Enforcement Response

 October 15, 2020 |  2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EDT

AMBER Alerts are activated in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the community to assist in the search for and safe recovery of a missing child. These alerts are broadcast through radio, TV, road signs, cellphones, and other data-enabled devices. During this webinar, law enforcement will understand the importance of what criteria needs to be met to request an AMBER Alert activation. Demonstrate and recognize the importance of having a plan or policy in place. Explain how critical it is to train and prepare in advance of an AMBER Alert activation to be able to respond quickly, as time is of the essence in every child abduction case.

About Webinars

AMBER Alert's webinars bring together state, local, and tribal subject matter experts to present and discuss critical issues related to missing, abducted and sexually exploited children. Law enforcement and child protection professionals will benefit from information regarding important first response, investigative and multi-agency efforts to swiftly and effectively handle cases of missing and abducted children.

To address the significant problem of human trafficking and child sexual exploitation, subject matter experts will identify prevalent types of victimization, risk factors for victimization and signs of possible exploitation among children. Presenters also include trafficking survivors and victim advocates who share their stories and perspectives on developing victim-centered responses in an effort to more effectively serve and support child victims.

Through these webinars, AMBER Alert works to increase collaboration between state, local and tribal communities in combating the problems of missing, abducted and exploited children in order to develop strengthened agency and collaborative responses, and to effectively address the needs of victims.
