Broadcasters from across the state met Friday with safety administratorsand law enforcement officials for a brainstorming session on how Iowa could implement its own “Amber Alert” program. Iowa Broadcasters Association president Tony Coloff. He says just about every agency under Iowa’s public safety department was represented at the meeting. Coloff says every plan is unique to the state or community that creates it, but he says an Amber Alert program must have three elements. First, law-enforcement must confirm a child’s abducted; and second, they must also confirm that they think the child may be in danger of physical harm; third, they must have enough information and description that it would be useful in a public alert. There are 55 Amber Alert plans today covering communities in 18 different states.
