We are pleased to have initiated the discussion about the Arizona Blue Alert.  The National Blue Alert is a nationwide initiative to alert the public about an officer that has been killed or injured in the line of duty and the suspect is at large and poses a threat to the public and law enforcement.  The public is then alerted to contact law enforcement if the suspect is seen.  Representative Justin Pierce introduced the bill with the support of our organization and the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).  The ceremonial bill signing ceremony took place last Thursday with Governor Brewer.  AHPA is looking forward to this the implementation of this system with the support of the Department of Public Safety (D.P.S.), media and our engaged citizens.  For more information about the alert and media coverage, go to www.AHPA.com.

Sincerely,

The AHPA Executive Board
