Amber AlertWhat is an AMBER Alert?

Tennessee's AMBER Alert program is a cooperative effort between the state's law enforcement community, media broadcasting agencies and the public in locating abducted children. It provides the public with immediate and up-to-date information about a child abduction via widespread media broadcasts and solicits the public's help in the safe and swift return of the child. The Tennessee's AMBER Alert program is modeled after the nationwide AMBER plan, which was developed in 1996 after nine-year-old Amber Hagerman was abducted and brutally murdered near her home in Arlington, Texas. Under the AMBER Alert concept, the state's law enforcement community employs the assistance of local radio and television stations to interrupt normal programming and request public assistance in locating children who have just been abducted. Emergency bulletins and photographs of the missing child are relayed from law enforcement agencies to the media through the Emergency Alert System and Locater Poster E-mail system. AMBER Alerts are issued through the TBI's Criminal Intelligence Unit.
