EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene Police Department (EPD) is going high tech when it comes to searching for missing people. EPD has contracted with the “A Child is Missing Alert Program” (ACIM) to search for locally missing children, elderly people, and college students. When EPD needs assistance finding someone, they can call ACIM to launch a large search effort.
ACIM first gathers the missing person’s information quickly. Within minutes, it calls all listed numbers in the area with the alert message and EPD’s phone number. ACIM has the ability to call thousands of people at the same time. The Florida-based program is free to law enforcement.
