Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
SecurLinx Corporation introduced AmberVision.org, at the FBI National Academy Associates Conference in Louisville, KY. AmberVision is an online enrollment service for parents to store the information required to issue an AMBER Alert. The data is stored in a secure system and is immediately available to law enforcement officers if the child is abducted or goes missing. The program includes facial recognition capabilities and provides a 3D image of the child to assist in identification. Police officers are supplied these tools when schools in their jurisdiction subscribe to the program.
SecurLinx will offer enrollment through a number of outlets including schools, day care centers and home school associations to assure that every child has access to the additional level of safety afforded by AmberVision. Any parent or guardian can enroll their child by visiting www,ambervision,org.
"In every missing child case, time is the critical factor in a successful outcome, said Barry Hodge, SecurLinx CEO. "Distributing the right information and a photo through as many outlets as quickly as possible improves the odds for a safe recovery and the return of the child to their family. We designed and developed AmberVision to achieve that goal," Mr. Hodge added.
SecurLinx offers every State AMBER Alert Coordinator electronic access to the AmberVision database allowing them to issue an AMBER Alert for an enrolled child within minutes to all law enforcement agencies, media outlets and the general public. The data is also accessible to local law enforcement authorities in missing person situations not rising to the level of an AMBER Alert. Both AMBER Alert coordinators and local law enforcement can build notification lists to distribute alerts. In all cases, the information is secure and totally controlled by parents and guardians.
Utilizing the biometric platform developed by SecurLinx, AmberVision offers the next generation in identity management. The software has been tested by various law enforcement agencies such as sheriff's departments, municipal law enforcement and State Police. Features include username and password access for parents, guardians, law enforcement and AMBER Alert Coordinators, biometric identity verification using smart phones and in car computers and rapid communication of information to law enforcement, media and the public at large.
