AMBER Alert Program Launched in Canada to Help Recover Missing Children

On Wednesday, October 20th, 2004, the Miramichi Police Force and the Child Safety Research and Innovation Center (CSRIC) sponsored an AMBER Alert workshop for coordinators from the Atlantic Provinces and Quebec. This innovative program partners the law enforcement community, media broadcasting agencies and the public to communicate immediate, up-to-date information about child abductions.

During the workshop, the Missing Child First Responder e-learning course was officially launched. The Missing Child First Responder course aids law enforcement personnel and members of the public to better understand the different types of missing children and how to effectively intervene when faced with these situations. The course integrates the AMBER Alert program and clearly outlines its objectives and the roles and responsibilities of the individuals involved.
