NRP received 10-12 angry calls about Amber Alert, and call released was worse than we heard

Niagara Regional Police say they received several calls from angry residents over yesterday's Amber Alert.

Constable Phil Gavin tells CKTB the Niagara 911 centre received ten to twelve calls complaining about the alert which went off shortly before 6 a.m. yesterday morning.

Gavin says they released the audio of the call to educate residents about the importance of Amber Alerts and the danger of tying up 9-11 resources.

He says the voices of the caller and the dispatcher have been distorted to protect their identities.

Gavin says they only released a few seconds of the 58 second call because the man becomes more irate, rude and he "goes down the rabbit hole."
