FBI National Digital Billboard Initiative

As the result of a national partnership between the FBI, Adams Outdoor, Clear Channel Outdoor, the Outdoor Advertising Association of Georgia, and Lamar Advertising, more than 1,000 digital billboards nationwide have been made available to display FBI information on fugitives, missing persons, wanted bank robbers, and more.

Through January 2009, the billboards have led directly to the capture of at least 14 fugitives, plus many more indirectly through overall publicity efforts.

This successful program was developed when a representative of one of these billboard companies had a positive experience at an FBI Citizens' Academy in Philadelphia and wished to support law enforcement's efforts.
