Amber Alert “Safe Child ID” Registration

Parents/Guardians of participating children receive a wallet sized, plastic card with a picture of the child, a unique AMBER ID number and only minimal, yet essential information needed to identify the child. This assists law enforcement by providing additional eyes of the public to look for the vehicle and occupants listed in the alert.
