U.S. – Google-owned traffic app Waze will reportedly begin to feature AMBER alerts. As reported by WebProNews, Waze has formed a partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

According to the report, Waze users will only be shown alerts in their respective geographic location, and if their vehicle has stopped for a minimum of 10 seconds.

Waze is quoted as stating in a blog post of the new feature, “Waze has always been about sharing information for the common good. In this spirit we hope the addition of AMBER alerts to Waze will make a significant contribution to safety and awareness for children and parents across communities everywhere.”

The blog post further states, “As of this writing, AMBER alerts have helped safely recover 728 children. We are proud to help expand the AMBER alerts program’s reach and eager to see the benefit Wazers can provide in making communities safer places.”
