More Complaints About Amber Alert System
Police are once again, asking people not to call 911 if they are upset about getting Amber Alert notifications on their phones.
A number of police forces across Ontario say they received several complaints Tuesday about being awakened by an alert issued for a three-year-old boy.
Greater Sudbury police issued the alert at about 5 a.m. alleging the boy had been abducted by his mother.
The boy was found safe in Toronto at 8 a.m., when another alert then went out to the public.
Toronto police say in a tweet that tying up the 911 lines could mean a slower response to an actual emergency.
Some people posted on Twitter that the Amber Alert system should be changed so it doesn't wake people living far from where a child goes missing.
