§9011.1. Transmission of Amber Alert and other emergency information
A. The legislature deems it necessary to utilize all forms of communication available to transmit information concerning child abductions. The "Amber Alert" system is the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and broadcasters to disseminate urgent bulletins in the most serious child abduction cases via the national Emergency Alert System to air a description of the missing child and suspected abductor.
B. The corporation shall enter into an agreement with the state police to help distribute information provided by the state police. The corporation will transmit a message to all on-line retailers which will be displayed on the lottery terminal. The corporation will encourage retailers to print and post the abduction information received in their stores, thereby increasing the distribution and visibility of vital details about child abductions.
C. The agreement shall also include provisions to authorize the transmission of other information the state police may consider imperative to be distributed to the public relative to other abductions or state or national emergencies.
