NBC Connecticut May 8, 2013 “Flaws Uncovered in State’s AMBER Alert Program”

Dr. John DeCarlo, a criminal justice professor at the University of New Haven and a former police chief comments on the criteria for an AMBER alert, its diluting effects and desensitization to the public. The federal government recommends states conduct after action reviews after each alert to keep track of how the system is working. "After action reports are a huge thing that need to be reviewed on a constant basis by all the stakeholders,” he said.
