New guidelines for N.J. Amber Alerts are less rigid after alleged East Orange baby abduction by father

TRENTON -- Attorney General Paula Dow said today new guidelines on Amber Alerts will allow the notices to be broadcast in situations where children are abducted by family members.

The state's current rules discourage using the alerts, intended to notify the public about missing children, in domestic custody cases.

The changes come in the wake of a February incident during which a father allegedly abducted his 3-month-old daughter then threw her off the Driscoll Bridge into the Raritan River. No Amber Alert was ready to be issued until four hours after the abduction, when the father was already arrested.

Imminent meant now, not latter for little Zara.

A top New Jersey official ordered an inquiry into why no Amber Alert was issued in the alleged abduction of Zara, a three-month-old infant by her father, who told police he tossed her into the Raritan River.

Acting Attorney General Paula Dow has ordered the state police to review the timeline in the case and New Jersey's criteria for Amber Alerts, which authorities said are not typically issued in abductions involving family members. Authorities said initial information in the case did not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert. By the time more was known and an alert was to be issued.

"Obviously, the system could have been activated a lot sooner, and the attorney general wants to look into this matter very closely," said an AG spokesman.

In New Jersey, the alerts are used when a child is believed to be in imminent danger, but generally not in family situations, including cases involving runaways and parents in a custody dispute, according to state police. Zara, is still listed as missing.

This is but one example for the presence of Code Amber Missing Persons Alerts.

Dial for H-E-L-P

The Congressional E-911 Caucus has introduced legislation to upgrade the country’s 911 technology, by passing “The Next Generation 911 Preservation Act of 2010.” Passage will provide grant funding for the nation’s 6,000 911 facilities.

State taxes on phone bills currently fund the 911 call centers which receive more than 650,000 emergency calls daily. The Next Generation 911Preservation Act provides a five year federal grant program to support state 911 services and upgrade the technology.

One persistent problem with mobile phones making assistance calls, was electronically identifying the location of the caller as there is with landlines. GPS LBS is doing much to alleviate that concern. Researchers predict the U.S. GPS LBS market will grow at an annual rate of 43.1 percent through 2010.

Unfortunately, the number of potential Alzheimer’s victims that will wander off and become lost will increase exponentially as the boomer generation grows older and will place significant demands on the system. A situation demanding a Code Amber Alertag.
