Nevada AMBER Alert
Nevada Amber Alert Criteria:
Law enforcement agencies ensure these conditions are met before activating an AMBER ALERT:
• The investigating law enforcement agency confirms an abduction has occurred.
• The victim is 17 years of age or younger, or has a proven mental or physical disability.
• The victim is in imminent danger of serious injury or death.
• There is information available that, if provided to the public, could assist in the child's safe recovery.

This is an image-based system linking state, county and local law enforcement. TRAK can capture and immediately distribute color photographs and images to law enforcement agencies, the media and other organizations. The system can also forward information via fax to businesses, hospitals, schools, the media and agencies without a TRAK system.

EDIS delivers official information about emergencies and disasters to law enforcement, news media and the public in California. Electronic emergency bulletins posted to EDIS are available by e-mail and pager from various providers, who voluntarily provide this service. In addition, text messages and color images and graphics can be posted on the EDIS Web site (www.edis.ca.gov) for access by the media, law enforcement agencies and the public.
