Virginia Amber Alert Program; use of certain technology. Requires the State Police, where appropriate, to use automatic dialing-announcing device technology to alert residents in a particular geographic area of an Amber Alert. The calls would be targeted to the area where the abducted child was most recently seen. An automatic dialing-announcing device is one that selects and dials telephone numbers to disseminate a prerecorded or synthesized message. Read the Bill »
