OJJDP Report Explains How To Implement an Endangered Missing Person Advisory

March 29, 2011

cover: Guide for Implementing or Enhancing an Endangered Missing Advisory

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.
