"National child alert systems: A (preliminary) overview " (by Delphine Moralis)

Child alert systems are used to swiftly alert the general public at large on life-threatening missing children cases, following the decision of a mandated law enforcement agency or organisation with official status regarding missing children within the framework of a protocol signed with the national law enforcement authorities, listing the responsibilities and procedures to be followed. The European Commission lists 12 member states in which the system has been put in place. Systems have or are in the process of being launched in a number of additional member states. While the goal of the system is comparable in all Member States involved, the characteristics, decision making procedures and stakeholders involved differ from one country to the next. The presentation will shed light on some of the key features of systems in place in 10 EU Member States today.
