FBI

The OOH advertising industry has partnered with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to deliver important messaging in certain critical situations. The FBI Digital Billboard Alert Network (DBAN) was created to allow the FBI to notify digital billboard operators when a wanted suspect is believed to be in a certain geographic area. The DBAN allows the FBI to upload photos and case information that is automatically entered into pre-approved FBI digital billboard templates and distributed to OOH companies. The FBI also uses the system to publicize those 10 Most Wanted fugitives who are believed to be in the United States. 

The partnership with the FBI has resulted in the apprehension of 50 wanted criminals thanks to digital billboards and alert citizens.
