FDLE Rolls Out New Amber Alert Platform

June 13, 2018

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is upgrading its AMBER and missing child alert public notification system to expand the ways citizens are informed during a Florida AMBER or Missing Child Alert.

Citizens can now receive AMBER and Missing Child Alerts through text messages as well as email. In the coming months, citizens will also be able to sign up to receive alerts through voice calls, TDD/TTY messaging, and through mobile device apps.

To use the new system, citizens must create an Everbridge account using the link below.  Current subscribers will continue to receive email alerts, but, to access the additional functions, citizens will need an Everbridge account.  Everbridge will use your email and phone numbers to send Florida AMBER and Missing Child Alert notifications only. Information will not be sold or distributed. Everbridge is used by government agencies to issue emergency alerts, like severe weather warnings, nationally and in Florida.
