Description

The only official Apple iOS App for the UK Child Rescue Alert system.

If your child went missing wouldn't you want the world to stop and look for them?

A Child Rescue Alert is only activated by the Police when a child is known to have been abducted or their life is believed to be at immediate risk.

» When do you use a Child Rescue Alert?
»» Child Rescue Alert is intended to be activated by the Police when particular criteria are met:
»»» The child is believed to be under 18 years old;
»»» There is a perception that the child is in imminent danger of serious harm or death;
»»» There is sufficient information available to enable the public to assist police in locating the child.

» Why not issue a Child Rescue Alert for every missing child?
»» When Child Rescue Alert is activated huge numbers of people will very quickly become aware of the endangered child. They need to be motivated sufficiently to keep their eyes open and be prepared to report sightings. We have to ensure that people notice the alerts. This is why there are strict criteria. If alerts are raised too frequently Child Rescue Alert could become ineffective. Many types of publicity appeals are made for other missing children in the UK by police forces, the charity Missing People and through the MissingKids website.

If you have information about a missing child who is not the subject of a Child Rescue Alert, please call or text 116 000, or visit this website -https://www.missingpeople.org.uk/missing-people/sightings-and-giving-information.

Please see http://www.childrescuealert.org.uk/home/page/Faqs for more information as well as the FAQs in the app itself.

Every second counts and your support is vital. By reporting a sighting you could be the person who saves a child’s life. The app also provides access to the latest child safety information.

Developed by the charity, Missing People, in partnership with CEOP, a command of the National Crime Agency and the technology provider, Groupcall.

Good app if you know what it's for

This is a really great initiative and app and the reason it doesn’t issue alerts regularly according to their website it that it is only to be used in very specific circumstances that the police decide. It is working but they have only issued one alert so far. You can also sign up to receive alerts via email and text on their website too which I’ve done – easier than taking up app space!

Needs Apple Watch Capability

News of missing or abducted children could reach further if Apple Watch capability could be added. Bearing in mind that people are now going for walks without their smart watches they may come across a child on their walk or in a shop and be made none the wiser, all because they left their phone at home. It would be brilliant if this app could add Apple Watch capability.

Could save a child's life

Nice, simple app that could save a child's life - everyone should have this on their phone.

I haven't had an alert come through yet but I understand that it's only used in really extreme situations.
