On July 31, 2014, Gov. Jan Brewer Signed into law, House Bill 2323, which will establishes a Blue Alert notification system designed to issue and coordinate alerts following an attack on a law-enforcement officer.
The system, an effort among state officials, broadcasters and others, will disseminate information statewide about suspected offenders — including detailed descriptions of the offenders, their vehicles and license-plate information. The system would be activated if, among other things, an officer has been killed or seriously injured and investigators determine the offender poses a threat to the public or other law enforcement.
The Blue Alert system has been adopted in 19 states and is being considered in seven others.
Tom Berry, the Founder of the National Blue Alert System welcomes the Great State of Arizona to the Blue Alert Family and was at the Signing Ceremony with Governor Jan Brewer and other Officials for the Signing of the Bill into Law. With Arizona, this makes 20 States that have the Blue Alert System. Kansas is the 21st State to have the Blue Alert in their State.

Albany – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), a former New York City Police Officer, is announcing that the New York State Senate is expected to take action this afternoon on a bill he sponsored, S.2108, that would establish a Blue Alert system in NY State.
The bill, if passed by the Senate and the Assembly this session, and signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo, would aid in the apprehension, identification and location of individuals suspected of killing or seriously wounding any law enforcement officer.
Senator Marty Golden stated, “There is no place on our streets for those who commit such heinous of a crime than to seriously injure or kill any local, state, or federal police officer. That is why today, I call upon my colleagues in the State Senate to approve this legislation so that we can put a mechanism in place here in New York State to more quickly take these criminals into custody.”
The Blue Alert system would be modeled after that of the Amber Alert system and has been established in Florida, Texas and Oklahoma.
Note from the Founder of the National Blue Alert System: The National Blue Alert System is now in 20 States and with New York, that will make it Our Lucky 21 State. But still, we will have to get the other 29 States on-board to get it in All 50.
Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-C, Brooklyn/Staten Island) is the Assembly sponsor. A.2278 is currently under consideration of the Governmental Operations Committee.
