Texas Regional Alert Networks

August 17, 2020

Upon the report of a qualifying missing persons incident, law enforcement has the option of contacting available regional alerting networks, in addition to the state's network. A regional network is a group of organized public alerting resources contained within multiple counties. The below are examples of possible regional network partners:

  • Local TV & Radio;
  • Public Transportation Drivers;
  • Towing Companies;
  • Gas Stations;
  • Convenience Stores;
  • Social Media;
  • Law Enforcement;
  • Schools;
  • Hospitals; and
  • Trucking Companies.

Because each regional network has their own autonomy apart from the state's network, law enforcement must submit a separate request to activate appropriate regional and/or state networks. Alert criteria, request procedures, resources and available alert types (Silver, Blue etc.) could differ. Regional alert networks are not available in all Texas counties.
