The Governorís Office of Highway Safety in cooperation with state and local law enforcement agencies has organized regional Traffic Enforcement Networks around the State of Georgia.

Each Law Enforcement Agency in the State of Georgia is encouraged to participate in a regional Traffic Enforcement Network.

|The first few hours immediately following a child's disappearance are the most critical to bringing them home unharmed. Every hour, day and week that a child is missing, the likelihood that they will be recovered safely decreases drastically. In fact, 74% of abducted children who are murdered are killed within the first 3 hours of abduction. It is because of this sensitivity to time that programs such as the AMBER Plan were created.|
Plan is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies and
broadcasters to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious
child-abduction cases with the hope that ordinary citizens are able to aid
in the search for abducted children.
AMBER Alert Net extends the reach of vital AMBER Alerts to computer desktops at home and in the workplace. Through a free small software application, Internet-connected users are now able to receive, print and email AMBER Alerts as they are released by local law-enforcement agencies.
