AUSTIN (AP) - A plan announced today by Governor Rick Perry is
meant to help find criminals who flee after killing or seriously
hurting a law officer.
Perry says the "Blue Alert" Network will help authorities
locate fugitives after officers are attacked in the line of duty.
The Blue Alert project involves the Texas Department of Public
Safety, the Governor's Division of Emergency Management and the
Department of Transportation.
An offender's vehicle information will be displayed across the
state via TxDOT highway message signs and media broadcasts.
The Blue Alert program is similar to the Amber Alert program to
help find missing and abducted children, and Silver Alerts for
msising senior citizens.
