What is the Michigan AMBER Alert Plan?
The Michigan AMBER Alert plan is a partnership between law enforcement and the media to help in the immediate dissemination of information to the public about an abducted child. AMBER Alerts are urgent bulletins issued utilizing the Emergency Alert System to interrupt radio and television broadcasting in the most serious child-abduction cases. The America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) Alert Program is a voluntary partnership between law enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry. Amber Alert of Michigan is supported by the Michigan State Police, Michigan Department of Transportation, Michigan Sheriff's Association, Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, and the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
MCL 28.751, et seq. establishes the Michigan Amber Alert Program and places the responsibility for the Michigan AMBER Alert system with the Department of State Police.
