An AMBER Alert is a rapid notification system to alert the public and solicit their assistance when a child has been abducted and is facing grave danger.
The U.S. Department of Justice recommends the following criteria for issuing an AMBER Alert:
1) There is reasonable belief by law enforcement an abduction has occurred;
2) The abduction is of a child age 17 years or younger;
3) The law-enforcement agency believes the child is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death;
4) There is enough descriptive information about the victim and abduction for law enforcement to issue an AMBER Alert to assist in the recovery of the child.
