This program provides training and technical assistance (TTA) to enhance the national AMBER Alert network; increase and improve law enforcement response to missing, endangered, and abducted children; increase the recovery rate of abducted children; strengthen child alert systems along the nation's northern and southern borders to better protect American children abducted to or through foreign countries; enhance or expand the integration of Tribal AMBER Alert systems into state AMBER Alert systems; create greater community capacity in understanding broader issues related to exploitation and abuse of children; and enhance public participation in the recovery of missing, endangered, and abducted children.
The goal of this program is to design, develop, and implement TTA to support the AMBER Alert network. Applicants must propose approaches that deliver effective, cost-efficient training through a combination of traditional classroom instruction and distance and online learning technologies.
The primary objective will be the delivery of specific products to serve law enforcement, broadcasters and media, transportation agencies, emergency management agencies, telecommunications/call centers, other public safety agencies, and child protection organizations and professionals dedicated to recovering endangered, missing, and abducted children.
