Activation Criteria

Before Levi's Call can be activated, the following "Alert Criteria" must be met:

  • Law enforcement officials have a reasonable belief that an abduction has occurred.
  • Law enforcement officials believe that the child is in imminent danger or serious bodily injury or death.
  • Enough descriptive information exists about the victim and the abductor for law enforcement to issue a Levi's Call:  Georgia's AMBER Alert.
  • The victim of the abduction is a child age 17 years or younger.
  • The child's name and other critical data elements - including the child abduction (CA) and AMBER Alert (AA) flags - have been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) system

Activation will not be granted for:

  • Non-custodial abductions where no danger exists to the child
  • Runaways

Over use of Levi's Call will cause the program to be ineffective.
