Steps for Activation
Criteria for ActivationAn abduction of a child (under 18) has occurred.

The abduction poses a credible threat of immediate danger of serious bodily injury of death to the child.

A law enforcement agency has determined that the child is not a runaway and has not been abducted as a result of a child custody dispute, unless the dispute poses a credible and or specific threat of serious bodily harm or death to the child.

There is sufficient descriptive information about the child, abductor and the circumstances surrounding the abduction to indicate that the activation of the Amber Alert will locate the child and/or suspect.

There is information available to disseminate to the general public, which could assist in the safe recovery of the child and/or the apprehension of a suspect.
Arizona law enforcement agencies MUST have a signed letter of agreement on file with the Arizona Broadcasters Association prior to requesting an Arizona AMBER Alert activation. To assure your agencies ability to activate the Arizona AMBER Alert Plan or for further information please contact our duty office at (602) 223-2212.
