OJJDP Report Explains How To Implement an Endangered Missing Person Advisory
March 29, 2011
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has published, "Guide for Implementing or Enhancing an Endangered Missing Advisory." The report describes how a community can create an endangered missing advisory (EMA) plan, developing voluntary partnerships to rapidly recover missing persons who do not fit the AMBER Alert criteria, but may be in danger. EMAs help law enforcement notify the general public that someone is missing and ultimately save lives. The guide provides directions for developing, activating, and sustaining an EMA plan and includes sample plans and press releases.
"Guide for Implementing or Enhancing an Endangered Missing Advisory" (NCJ 232001) is available at http://www.ojjdp.gov/publications/PubAbstract.asp?pubi=254081.
Print copies can be ordered online from the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.
