The FBI on Digital Billboards

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on December 27, 2007

Press release: “Coming soon to 20 major cities nationwide: our wanted fugitives, missing persons, and high-priority security messages flashing across large digital billboards in strategic locations where they can be seen by millions driving by each day. The initiative — announced on Monday following a successful campaign in Philadelphia — is made possible through a partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor, an advertising company that’s providing the space as a public service. The billboards will enable us to highlight those who we’re looking for the most in a given area: violent criminals, kidnap victims, missing kids, bank robbers, even terrorists. And we’ll be able to feature them quickly—right after a crime is committed, a child is taken, or an attack is launched.”
