Davis group donates to Amber Alert fund

Deseret News Davis group donates to Amber Alert fund:

Utah's Amber Alert program has gotten a $5,300 boost in funding from a booster group for the Davis Chamber of Commerce.

The Davis Chamber of Commerce Women in Business raised and donated $5,320 to help fund training materials for law enforcement agencies on the Amber Alert, which is issued whenever a child is believed to have been abducted. The Utah Attorney General's Office admits that its budget for the Amber Alert program is nearly empty. The training is often funded through donations from businesses and individuals.

The Utah Legislature recently passed a law allowing donors to the Utah Amber Alert fund to get a tax write-off.
