I think this non-profit organization to search for locally missing and endangered people is a great idea that I believe will help the Police Department. Not only are children kidnapped but, everybody is endangered on a daily basis. Let’s face it; We live in a dangerous world. But if we use the proper tools, we could help find these missing individuals in time.
Our technology today is advancing. We use our cellphones and smartphones all the time. They are always at our disposle. Why not use them for a source to help the community? The problem is, not everyone is around a radio or television the second a person goes missing. And timing is such a crucial element to find him or her. A simple text message with a detailed description and report could be the difference between life and death.
This free alert system Murfreesboro Police Department is trying to put together will be extremley beneficial to the public. I think this is a great idea and could possibly save someone's life. A missing person could be within feet of you and not even be aware of it. But with more technology advances we can be more aware of our surroundings.
