Pai proposes police-protecting EAS alerts.

Chairman Pai

The FCC chairman wants to add so-called “Blue Alerts” to the Emergency Alert System, warning the public about missing, seriously-injured or killed law enforcement officers—an AMBER alert system for LEOs. In announcing the proposal, Commissioner Pai noted, “As we have learned from the very successful AMBER Alert initiative for recovering missing children, an informed public can play a vital role in assisting law enforcement.”
