New CLEAR Alert System Assists Law Enforcement in Locating Endangered, Missing Adults

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) joined Rep. Greg Bonnen at a press conference today to discuss the implementation of the CLEAR Alert, or the Coordinated Law Enforcement Adult Rescue Alert. This new alert system will assist law enforcement in locating and rescuing missing adults who may have been kidnapped, abducted or who are in immediate danger of injury or death, as well as aid in locating any potential suspects. Rep. Bonnen authored HB 1769, which created this new alert, and Sen. Larry Taylor sponsored this act in the Senate.

“I am proud to have sponsored this crucial legislation to close a gap in the statewide alert system,” said Sen. Taylor. “CLEAR Alert gives victims another opportunity to be safely reunited with their families. This effort honors the lives of those we could not save and ensures the wellbeing of those we will.”
