POUGHKEEPSIE N.Y. — When an child is abducted, every second is crucial. Information that could lead to their safe return is broadcast on TV and radio and posted on highway signs. The AMBER Alert system uses technology to quickly notify the public.
“The AMBER Alert system is important because it gets the information out there to a wide area. Once that notification goes through for an abducted juvenile, it goes out statewide,” explained Ulster County Sheriff Paul Van Blarcum.
