In 30 days, the Amber Alert System is expected to come to the Lubbock area. It's a program that can find kidnapped children much faster. On Monday, Governor Rick Perry signed the order.
Here's how it would work:
"If you can get information out as quickly as possible, you're less likely to have the child away from the area in a short amount of time. The shorter time frame, the less likely for foul play," said Trooper John Gonzales.
The federal government is giving Texas $200,000 in grant money to pay for the program. There will be no extra cost for local law enforcement.
