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.
On Wednesday, May 30, the Molly Bish Foundation hosted the 12th Annual Missing Children’s Day Ceremony at the Grand Staircase in the State House. This ceremony honored the memory of missing and murdered children and demonstrated support for missing and abducted children who have been safely returned to their families. The ceremony included testimonials from parents of missing and murdered children as well as speeches from members of law enforcement and the Legislature.
On Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, come to The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Springfield, MA and join former Boston Celtic Dana Barros and New England law enforcement at the 4th Annual Massachusetts State Police National AMBER Alert Day Child Safety Fair . State Troopers and Police Officers will be preparing complimentary digital child identification kits for parents to use in the event that their child goes missing or is abducted. Dana Barros will give basketball tips and a children’s magician will also stop by. Additionally, the Massachusetts State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force will make a presentation on Internet safety for children.
- Three basic criteria must be met before the State Police will activate the plan.
- 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.
