The second AMBER Advocate issue of 2023 spotlights the recent National AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program/AMBER Alert in Indian Country Symposium, which attracted hundreds of law enforcement professionals to Tucson. We feature participants’ compelling takes on numerous topics explored at the event, including best practices for investigating endangered missing and abducted children (particularly those from Tribal lands and children of color); essential and emerging technologies; and the need for more and better wellness care. We also look at how a Florida sheriff's department enlisted their community—and a novel tracking app—in their successful search for a 2-year-old, and meet tech-savvy West Virginia State Police First Sergeant James Kozik.
After two years of meeting virtually, hundreds of law enforcement professionals gather in Tucson for the 2023 AATTAP-AIIC National Symposium.
A Florida toddler is found safe 24 hours after getting lost in a thicket ‘where not many adults would want to be overnight.’ Hundreds of law enforcement officers and community volunteers, aided by a novel app, joined the search.
Embracing technology to find missing children drives West Virginia State Police First Sergeant James Kozik to excel in his work. He wants others to follow his lead.
