Why is there no API for Virginia’s AMBER Alert system? I should be able to have all of my websites query their system every hour and, when an alert is found, display the content of the alert on every page on every site. Heck, I’d write a WordPress plugin so that anybody could easily deploy the same system on their own website. This seems pretty obvious, really.

If anybody with the power to make this happen wants to talk about this, please contact me.
