• AMBER Alert Overview

    Massachusetts Child AMBER Alert is an emergency alert system that helps recover abducted children. The Plan utilizes the Emergency Alert System (EAS) to interrupt regular programming and broadcast information that could help recover the child. Information is also broadcast on electronic signs along highways and in airports.
  • Criteria for Issuing an AMBER Alert

    Three basic criteria must be met before the State Police will activate the plan.
  • How the Public Can Help

    Stay tuned to the radio or TV, or keep your eye out for the AMBER Alert highway message boards for details. Then Be On the Look-Out (B.O.L.O.) for the individuals and vehicles involved in the abduction.

    The MSP has joined together with several partners to establish a voluntary, cooperative program, that will send an emergency alert to the public when a child has been abducted and it is believed that the child's life is in serious danger of bodily harm or death.
