Rapid Emergency Child Alert Framework

September 13, 2016

The International Centre for Missing & Exploited ChildrenĀ partnered with AMBER Alert Europe to produce a 14-point framework on implementing rapid emergency child alert systems. Currently, 24 countries use rapid emergency child alert systems in cases where a missing child is at immediate risk. The goal of these alert systems is to instantly galvanize entire communities to assist in the search for and safe recovery of a missing child. The missing children issue is complex and multi-faceted including prevention, support and after care. This framework is to be used in conjunction with other protocols and procedures designed to support the rapid recovery of missing children.
