Grant to a USA nonprofit, for-profit organization, or institution of higher education to improve nationwide capacity to respond to occurrences of missing and abducted children. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The selected agency will provide technical assistance and training services to improve alert networks and law enforcement response.
The AMBER Alert program is a partnership of 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. The National AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program serves to increase the nation’s capacity to respond to incidents of endangered, missing, and abducted children.
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 successful applicant will be required to work closely with OJJDP; the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC); the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC); and appropriate agencies, organizations, and professionals to provide TTA to law enforcement agencies, AMBER Alert coordinators, state missing child clearinghouses, child protection professionals, broadcasters, and others concerned with child abduction and victimization.
