|United States, Mexico, and Canada Strengthen AMBER Alert Ties at Trinational Forum
June 6, 2016
The Department of Justice’s Office of Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training and Mexico’s Office of the Attorney General recently sponsored a Trinational Forum in Mexico City. The event brought together AMBER Alert Coordinators from Mexico, the United States, and Canada to discuss ways the three countries can better respond to potential cross-border cases of missing children. In her remarks at the recent National Missing Children’s Day ceremony in Washington, DC, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said, “I am proud to say that our Department of Justice has collaborated with the Attorney General of Mexico on the development of Mexico’s AMBER Alert System, which has already resulted in the rescue of hundreds of Mexican children.” Since 2012, AMBER Alert has led to the rescue of more than 350 children in Mexico.
