Amare CEO Dominic O’Dierno has a history of supporting causes involving child welfare and safety. Over the years, Dominic O’Dierno has advocated for the work of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which uses the Amber Alert System as part of its protection services.
The Amber Alert System is a nationwide program managed by the U.S. Department of Justice used to notify the public of a dangerous situation involving a child. The system was first developed in 1996, after the abduction of a young girl in Texas. Since then, it has been adopted by all 50 states and more than two dozen countries. The system aids in the recovery of thousands of children every year.
To increase the likelihood that a kidnapped child will be found, the Amber Alert System sends identifiable information about the abductor over the radio, television, text message, and electronic billboard. Amber Alerts are issued if law enforcement believes that a minor has been abducted and is in grave danger. Since the system is integrated at the national level, alerts can be issued state or region-wide, which increases the likelihood that a child will be found.
