Effective December 6, 2011, upon receipt of missing persons calls, the Natrona County Sheriff's Office will make its first phone call to a toll-free number that rings to the national headquarters of the 'A Child Is Missing Alert Program (ACIM).' The call initiates a rapid process of information gathering and use of sophisticated mapping systems. A Child Is Missing then launches potentially thousands of calls within minutes with an alert message detailing the missing person's description, last know whereabouts, and pertinent information.
Phone numbers that are called by this program include listed numbers and mobile numbers available to ACIM in the selected area. Mobile numbers, unlisted numbers, broadband/voice-over IP numbers, or TDD/TTY devices can be added to ensure they, too, are called in the event of an alert. To enter any of these numbers visit www.achildismissing.org and click on 'add your name' to enter your name number and address.
This program is a free service to law enforcement. Read the full Media Release here.
