Code Adam- Including Participants
Look for this Code Adam decal in the windows of the stores you and your family frequent.
Code Adam, one of the country’s largest child-safety programs, is a nationwide initiative named in the memory of Adam Walsh who, at the age of six, was abducted from a department store 25 years ago. Originally developed by Wal-Mart associates, Code Adam is activated when a child is first reported missing within a facility and prior to the arrival of law enforcement personnel. Employees of participating businesses, who are trained in Code Adam procedures, are able to respond quickly and effectively if an abduction occurs in their establishment.
Since the Code Adam program began in 1994, it has been a powerful search tool for lost and possibly abducted children in more than 45,000 establishments across the nation. Participating stores will have a Code Adam decal posted on their window of the store.
The Code Adam program is offered free-of-charge to retail establishments, office buildings, libraries, federal buildings, and other public spaces. Additional information and materials are available by contacting the Missing Child Center-Hawaii at 808-586-8197 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
