Blue Alert

A Blue Alert is a statewide alert sent after a police officer is killed, seriously injured, or missing after an interaction with a suspect who is on the run.  It is up to the individual American states to create a Blue Alert system. Florida was the first to do so in 2008, and in 2015 President Obama signed an act that required the Department of Justice to assist the states in developing Blue Alert systems. In the military and civilian defense, a blue alert is "an alert following the first, or yellow, alert, in which air attack seems probable."
