- Amber Alert Program
Amber Alert Program
The Amber Alert program was introduced in Newfoundland and Labrador in 2003. It is a province wide innovative program which partners the province's law enforcement community, media broadcasting agencies and the public with a focus of locating abducted children.
When an Amber Alert occurs, Police Agencies provides the public with immediate and up-to-date information about an ongoing child abduction by widespread media broadcasts and solicits the public's help in the safe and swift return of the child.
Newfoundland and Labrador Amber Alert Criteria:
- Police have confirmed an abduction has occurred.
- The victim is a child, or of proven mental or physical disability.
- There is reason to believe the victim is in danger of serious bodily injury.
- Information is available that, if broadcast to the general public, could assist in the safe recovery of the child.
