abducted children.

The National AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program serves to increase the nation’s capacity to respond to incidents of endangered missing and abducted children.

This program is authorized under Section 405 of the Missing Children’s Act, which is Title IV of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C.

5771 et seq.).

This program provides training and technical assistance support to enhance the national AMBER Alert network; increases and improves law enforcement response to missing, endangered, and abducted children; increases the recovery rate of abducted children; strengthens child alert systems in the nation’s northern and southern borders to better protect American children abducted to or through foreign countries; creates greater community capacity in understanding broader issues related to exploitation and abuse of children; and enhances public participation in the recovery of missing, endangered, and abducted children.
