Everbridge and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Celebrate 4 Years of Collaboration in Helping Bring Home Missing Kids

Share:

Everbridge and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children®
(NCMEC) celebrate the
ongoing success of their alliance that has helped to reunite missing
children with their families over the past four years. Since launching
the venture in 2014, NCMEC has provided support to law enforcement in
hundreds of cases nationwide—cases which were brought to the
organization's attention with Everbridge's help.

Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVBG), the global leader in critical event
management software designed to help keep people safe and businesses
running, enables police and sheriff's departments, among others, to send
alerts to their residents through a secure network. Those alerts are
monitored by NCMEC for cases involving missing or exploited children.
When a relevant match is found, NCMEC reaches out to law enforcement to
offer its vast resources and support. In the past year alone, over 700
incidents have been sent to them through the Everbridge network.

"The use of technology to provide alerts about a missing child is an
invaluable timesaver, especially given the need to act quickly in these
cases," said John Bischoff, NCMEC Executive Director, Missing Children
Division. "Everbridge products play an instrumental role in that
alerting process, which is key to finding missing children and bringing
them home safely."

Everbridge's network of municipal, county, and state police departments
helps those organizations collaborate locally and, in the case of NCMEC,
nationally. At a time when public safety budgets and staff continue to
be stretched, interagency cooperation and teamwork is essential to
keeping people safe.

In the recent case of a young girl who went missing last year from her
home in Georgia, NCMEC received an Everbridge alert from local law
enforcement, provided the girl's family with emotional support, and sent
someone with search team expertise to provide on-site assistance to law
enforcement. After a day of searching, she was located alive in a wooded
area, transported to a local hospital for evaluation, and brought home
safely.

"Everbridge is in the business of safety," explains Everbridge CEO Jamie
Ellertson. "It is an honor any time we can help agencies work together
to safeguard our communities. We are proud to continue our work with the
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to help protect our
most valuable asset, our children."
