These announcements appear to offer new technologies to California Law Enforcement in their efforts to find missing children.
- How much of a possibly financially strapped budget should be spent on existing products from established companies versus emerging products from startups?
- Should these solutions be provided by the Department of Justice and the NCMEC as part of the new proposed 2008 budget for CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN AND OBSCENITY ?
The NCMEC recently announced Project Online Safety. Is Law Enforcement unaware of these tools or do they for some reason choose not to use them?
Late last year, Texas Governor Rick Perry announced the award of $100,000 to BeyondMissing, Inc., to provide a web-based system to support law enforcement agencies in the development of Amber Alert flyers on suspected child abductions. At issue was the availability of these systems from the NCMEC via their Lost Child Alert Technology Resource, LOCATER™ system.
Another product being pitched, soon through infomercials , is OPPS Missing Child Alert system.
“Our Missing Child Alert System was developed with extensive input from law enforcement experts, and greatly expands the capabilities and distribution of our OPPS law enforcement products,” said John A. Cardona, AdZone’s president and chief operating officer. “Our goal is to implement this system within every one of the 15,000-plus police departments nationwide, and to help start bringing home the missing kids.”
