COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio's Senate passed a bill to create an Amber Alert-type warning system for police on Wednesday.
A "Blue Alert" would be broadcast to let Ohioans know when a law enforcement officer has been killed or injured and the suspect has not been captured.
Attorney General Mike DeWine says people brazen enough to kill or harm law enforcement are likely to be willing to hurt civilians. He had previously spoken in support of the measure.
If approved by the House, Ohio would join 13 other states that issue similar alerts. The measure passed with the support of all 33 state Senators.
