The Missouri State Highway Patrol is making an effort to diversify its ranks. Jennifer Davidson has more.

Friday is National Amber Alert Day.  Law enforcement officials across the nation are recognizing the importance of the Amber Alert System, which is a high-speed, high-tech way of alerting the public when a child has been abducted. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, there’s been some misunderstanding about the criteria that must be met before the alert can go out.
