Wireless Emergency Alerts Program Log

Wireless Emergency Alerts Program

The Wireless Emergency Alerts Program replaced The Wireless AMBER Alerts Program on January 1, 2013. AMBER Alerts are now distributed via the Wireless Emergency Alerts program that also distributes Presidential and Imminent Threat Alerts. Unlike Wireless AMBER Alerts, which users had to sign up to receive, WEA AMBER Alerts are automatically distributed to users with a WEA-capable device in the area of an active alert. The Department of Justice - Office of Justice Programs as well as the Wireless Industry through CTIA, FEMA, Syniverse, and NCMEC have all worked very hard to ensure a seamless transition.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol serves as the coordinating law enforcement agency in Missouri to alert the public of missing or abducted children. Inquiries or assistance concerning activation of an Amber Alert or a missing persons investigation should be directed to the Troop F Communications Center at (573) 751-1000.
