During this July 23, 2020 webinar, BJA and other personnel provided background information about the Ashanti Alert Act and the Ashanti Alert Pilot Project. The presenters shared how the pilot program will work and discussed the plans that agencies may need to develop to become part of the National Ashanti Alert Network, which is a national notification system for missing or endangered individuals between the ages of 18 and 64.
