Silver Alert Program Silver Alert Program

Silver Alert was developed in Florida to help law enforcement officers rescue persons with Alzheimer’s disease, or a related disorder, who are driving a car and become lost. The public is informed about the missing person through dynamic message signs on the highway. Governor Charlie Crist established Florida’s “Silver Alert” system by executive order in October 2008.
