Today Marks 18th Anniversary Of Kidnapping Of Amber Hagerman, Whose Death Inspired AMBER Alerts

I Fail to see how any self-respecting human being can think of anything more important than a Child’s Safety, but apparently Our Country has a very large number of this kind of plastic whatever they are….

Texas Department of Public Safety officials are joining law enforcement around the nation in observing National AMBER Alert Awareness day.

Today is the 18th anniversary of the kidnapping of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman. She was riding her bike in a parking lot in Arlington. She was killed. Her body was later found in a drainage ditch.

The AMBER alert, which stands for “America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response,” was created by Dallas-Fort Worth area law enforcement and media representatives in the fall of 1996.

Since then, every state has adopted the program. Gov. Rick Perry established the Texas AMBER Alert in 2002, complementing existing programs already in place.

From its inception, the Texas AMBER Alert program has been activated by the Department of Public Safety 109 times and has helped recover 124 children.

DPS says that should a child go missing, the public should immediately call the authorities and provide them with a recent photo of the child.
