- Abduction Central Alert (ACA) – immediately identifies a 100 mile radius around where a reported abduction has taken place and notifies adjacent police, radio, television, and support organizations of the incident.
- ACA Child Identification Poster System (ACA CHIPS) - captures live video images and uses an infrared laser scanner to store fingerprints digitally on floppy diskette. The ACA CHIPS disks are given to parents for safe keeping and can be used by law enforcement to expedite the alert process if a child is reported missing.
