Why do I need to give my personal physical characteristics to bConcerned.com?
We hope everyone returns safely from a date. As a veteran police officer, I know sometimes situations can turn very ugly! If for some reason you cannot confirm your safe return and your alert contact cannot contact you. We will provide your profile, which contains your personal data, to any law enforcement agency investigating your location. The more personal information you provide to bConcerned.com, the better we may assist any law enforcement agency in locating you.
Is it important to enter additional information of the person/place boxes?
This very important! Add as much information as possible that you have of your date, ex. type of vehicle they drive, where they work, what online dating site you meet this person on, their screen name, email address, physical characteristics.
