  • Canadian provinces have also been establishing AMBER Alert programs in 2003 and 2004.
  • In some areas the AMBER system has been used to send alerts about people with Alzheimer's disease or other disabilities who are missing.
  • AMBER alerts are generally given for children kidnapped by strangers since statistics show they are in the most serious danger. Child custody abductions and abductions by relatives usually do not qualify for an alert unless the child is likely to suffer physical harm.
  • America Online (AOL), the Internet provider, issues AMBER Alerts to subscribers signed up by an AOL Alerts and Reminder service.
  • Section 323 of the PROTECT Act created a cyber tip line so online users can report Internet-related child sexual activities.
  • Child Abuse Prevention Month is in April of each year, the same month in which PROTECT was signed.
