Funding Model: Transaction-Based Self Funding
Launch Date: 2006
The system the Vermont State Police had for managing Amber Alerts, while functional, was challenging to manage and paper intensive, and we did not have funding to build an electronic system. We approached NIC, explained what we were looking to do with Amber, told them we had no funding, and they readily accepted the project. The online service NIC produced for issuing and managing an Amber Alert far exceeded my expectations. In my opinion the role NIC is performing for public safety, and state government in general, is critical.
