Welcoming Remarks: National AMBER Alert and AMBER Alert in Indian Country Virtual Symposium

OJJDP Acting Administrator Chyrl Jones

OJJDP Acting Administrator Chyrl Jones thanks law enforcement officers, AMBER Alert coordinators, state clearinghouse managers, and Child Abduction Response Team members who plays essential roles in finding missing and abducted children. She highlights the primary initiatives that OJJDP supports to respond to missing and exploited children — the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and the AMBER Alert program. The Acting Administrator also discusses the 2018 Ashlynne Mike AMBER Alert in Indian Country Act, which provides additional resources to help tribes connect with their state and regional AMBER Alert plans.
