German Member of European Parliament Bernd Kölmel (Allianz für Fortschritt und Aufbruch/ ECR) supports Initiative Vermisste Kinder and AMBER Alert Europe in their call for a German AMBER Alert system.
“To save missing children it is crucial to act immediately, every minute counts. German citizens need to be informed as soon as possible via all available media. It is absolutely necessary that Germany builds a modern, digital AMBER Alert system”, says MEP Kölmel.
Together with 35 German Members of European Parliament, Bernd Kölmel, supports AMBER Alert Europe’s call for a national AMBER Alert system in every European Member State. Currently 17 European Member States have an AMBER Alert system in place. When the police believe the public can help find a child, the police in these countries can quickly disseminate information on a missing child using a wide variety of media e.g. traditional and social media, bill boards, high way signs.
