Utah Becomes 29th State to Adopt Silver Alert System

by silveralertbill

On March 22, 2019, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed into law House Bill 215, sponsored by Rep. Lee Perry. The Silver Alert Law was one of 75 bills signed into law, according to the story on KUTV-2.

The new law makes Utah the 29th state to have a Silver Alert program. Utah previously only had an Endangered Person Advisory.

HB 215 defines “endangered adult” as a person 60 years of age or older with dementia.
