State Stat
On July 31, 2003, Kentucky's Amber Alert system was utilized for the first time and resulted in the immediate capture of two suspects accused of abducting a Shelbyville, Kentucky teenager. State troopers learned about the Amber Alert on their police radios via the Kentucky Emergency Warning System (KEWS) communications network. The KEWS network of communications towers serves as a vital tool for many Kentucky state agencies including the Department of Natural Resources, State Police, Emergency Management, Transportation Cabinet, and Kentucky Educational Television (KET).

The Governor's Office for Technology is in charge of the operation and management of the KEWS network.
