From: "Eibel, Henry" <eibel@TURNPIKE.STATE.NJ.US> Subject: Silver Alert - SOP's In late December of 2008 NJ Governor Cody signed a law creating a system similar to the Amber Alert System, called a Silver Alert this alert is a public notification system to broadcast information about missing persons over 18 - especially seniors with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or other mental disabilities in order to aid in their return. Since January 1st in conjunction with the NJ State Police we have broadcasted 18 Silver Alerts and 2 Amber Alerts. We currently activate all VMS (300+ Statewide), HARs, as well as mass emailing all Authority and DOT employees, radio broadcast on all maintenance channels, along with dissemination to the NJ511 system. I would appreciate your guidelines for Silver Alerts i.e. percentage of VMS, 511, two silver alerts at the same time, etc. Thanks Chip From: "Kremer, Annjanette (MDOT)" <KremerA@MICHIGAN.GOV> Subject: Re: Silver Alert - SOP's Hello At this time Michigan doesn't do Silver Alerts. There is legislation proposing this though so we would be interested also in any documentation.

Unfortunately, I cannot be of much help this time .... as Missouri doesn't have Silver Alert legislation.
