When a person’s life is in danger, police use all available resources. When a child is involved, the stakes are even higher and the intensity with which the police respond elevates accordingly. Leveraging the power of Vigilant Video’s National Vehicle Location Service (NVLS), two abducted children were recently brought to safety.
On Saturday, May 19th, 2012, two children were abducted in Texas by their biological father. The father had a violent criminal history, had made threats to other family members, and was known to carry a firearm. Clearly the abduction was considered a serious threat to the well-being and safety of the children, and an Amber Alert was issued on the father’s vehicle.
On the morning of Sunday May 20, 2012, the suspect vehicle was located in Memphis, Tennessee, as a result of an NVLS search. Federal and local authorities responded to the lead generated by NVLS and located the car, which contained the father and children. The father was taken into custody and the children were returned to Children’s Protective Services unharmed.
This is just one example of the great work by a team of Law Enforcement officials taking advantage of all available resources to save a victim. If you aren’t using NVLS, sign up for a free trial today.
