WTVO/WQRF - In an effort to help kidnapped kids, the Illinois Lottery is teaming up with law enforcement agencies.
The Lottery will broadcast AMBER Alerts via their advertising monitors. There are more than 8,200 Lottery retailers throughout the state.
"Child abduction is one of the worst nightmares any family can experience" says Illinois Lottery Director Michael Jones. "The Illinois Lottery recognizes the importance and effectiveness of the AMBER Alert system, and is honored to be able to assist throughout the state."
