Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) — With the New Year, a new law was enacted in Tennessee. This time, COVID-19 has shortened the year of parliamentarians, but one of the laws that will come into force this year is the Holly Bobo Act.

The new law expands the warning options for endangered children in Tennessee, allowing law enforcement agencies to issue warnings not only to children but also to young adults under the age of 21. This was not available to Holly at the time.

Although less urgent than Amber Alerts, alerts for endangered children are pushed to the media and sent through TBI’s own social media.

“It’s the most important thing in getting the attention of many people in a short amount of time and dealing with the missing,” said Kirk Huston, R-Robelville.

The new law does not change Amber Alerts with federal regulations attached.
