On behalf of the Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, we are pleased to offer the twenty-third edition of the AMBER Advocate. This edition looks at the impact the FCC auction of broadcast spectrum space may have on AMBER Alerts. The issue also has a story about citizens responding to an early morning AMBER Alert in Ohio and a profile of Wisconsin AMBER Alert Coordinator Susan Whitehorse.
This newsletter reaches more than 40,000 law enforcement representatives, child protection advocates, elected officials, public safety agencies, broadcasters and many others interested in the welfare of children. Comments and recommendations from recipients of the AMBER Advocate have proven to be valuable and helpful in making the publication informative and useful to the many professionals across a number of disciplines. If you have additional names and/or databases to expand the distribution please advise us so we may add the new recipients to our distribution system.
The newsletter is a primary tool to communicate developments, progress, personal stories and improvements to responses to incidents of missing, endangered and abducted children. We are excited about the progress realized toward our mission of recovering abducted and endangered children and encourage you to remain steadfast in your support of this mission and the AMBER Alert Program. For 2013 we have added new and informative training and technical assistance offerings for your use, which can be found at http://www.amber-net.org/training.htm.
