LISTEN | NRP receive angry 911 complaint after Amber Alert
It seems Niagara is not immune to complaints about the Amber Alert.
Early yesterday morning, police issued an Amber Alert after fears that a three year old boy had been abducted.
Police detachments across the province have been getting complaints to 911 about the alerts happening at inconvienent hours.
The Niagara Regional Police have released audio of this call:
911 is intended for emergencies only. Calling to complain about an #AmberAlert ties up precious resources for others who may need help.

Thankfully, this time the child from Sudbury was found safely at a Toronto condo, but the same cannot be said for Riya Rajkumar who was found dead shortly after the her alert went out in February.
