What is AMBER Alert?

It is a voluntary nationwide partnership to combat child abduction by providing immediate descriptive information to law enforcement, television, radio, and traffic signs across the country to aid in a child’s safe recovery. 

The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters partnered with local law enforcement to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children.  AMBER, stands for America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response.  The AMBER Alert System was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington , Texas , and then brutally murdered.  In May 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law a national AMBER Alert Program.

What is the Rotary Child Safety Id System Project?

It is a voluntary program for all children under the age of 18.  Parents/Guardians of participating children receive a wallet sized, laminated card with a picture of the child, a unique Rotary ID number and only minimal, yet essential information needed to identify a child.  This information is stored in a secure data base currently located at the Connecticut Department of Public Safety-Communications Center.  This card can be presented to law enforcement in the event a child is abducted.  The information is transmitted to law enforcement and to the public via Television, Radio and Traffic Signs.  This assists law enforcement by providing additional eyes of the public to look for the vehicle and occupants listed in the alert.

What happens at a free Rotary Child Safety ID System Event?

Parents/Guardians fill out a pertinent information form. Children are weighed and measured.The (information) data  on the information form is entered into a computer.A digital picture of the children is recorded.Parents/Guardians are given an ID card for each child.Additional cards are available upon request for a minimal fee.Click here to view information form.

Who should carry a Rotary Alert Child ID card?

All parents/guardians as well as any caregiver taking a child to a public venue should carry an ID card.

Why is the Rotary Child Safety Id System Project the preferred method of child registration?

The Rotary Child Safety Id System Project is the only known program to pass out an ID card to parents that can be immediately handed to Law Enforcement as soon a child is discovered missing.

The Rotary Child Safety Id System Project does not print the name, address or phone number of a child on the ID card.The only way to (trace) obtain a child’s ID (card) information is by the ID number printed on the ID card.  (If the ID card is lost or stolen, potential perpetrators can not gain access to a child’s personal information.) If a child’s ID card is lost or stolen, the information for that child is still in the computer system and available to legitimate law enforcement.Only verified Law Enforcement can access (request) the Child’s Information.There is no internet access to the computer system. (? Should this be under security?  YES)The Rotary Child Safety Id System Project is the only known program to accept newborns to children up to age 18.Updating a child’s information: You can update the information at any ID Event. In children newborns to 4 years old every 6 months5 years old to 17 years old once a year.

What about Privacy and Security?

The Rotary Child Safety Id System Project has endeavored to provide both the privacy and security of the information and the computer system.

Privacy of the information is achieved by omitting the child’s name and address from the Identification Card and also omitting the child’s address from the database.

Security of the computer system is provided by making access to the information only available to law enforcement officials who can activate an AMBER Alert.

There is no internet access to the computer system by anyone other than the Connecticut State Police.
