About Bring Them Home Texas
Bring Them Home Texas is an alliance of Texans who care deeply about recovering our missing. We believe that in today’s world, where technology is the ultimate resource for broadcasting information, the government is doing us a huge disservice in not utilizing the ability to post pictures of individuals or getaway vehicles on its AMBER Alert Signs. We have the technology and resources, let’s use them!
Emergency Alert Systems significantly increase the rates of reuniting missing persons with their loved ones.
AMBER Alerts, for example, have proven effective in recovering missing children. The system works by quickly dispersing important details to an expansive audience. And while helpful, we believe the state is not maximizing the Alert System’s potential.
The state should be taking advantage of every tool available to reunite more children with their families.
The key to locating a missing person is vehicle recognition
…and pictures resonate more than words. Recovery rates are much higher when crucial data is displayed in an Alert through graphics versus text. Examples of such graphics are photos of The Missing, images of a vehicle’s make/model/color and license plates. Digital signs can reach an expansive audience more quickly than almost any other medium available today. Digital signs are a resource we cannot afford to continue to waste.
