OPP aren't apologizing for using tools that can help find a child.
This after they received numerous complaints from people about the timing of this morning's Amber Alert.
The Ontario AMBER Alert program continues to be an instrumental tool in assisting both the public and police with locating an abducted child who may be in danger.
OPP remind the public that calling 911 or any emergency service communication centre is not an appropriate venue to complain about AMBER Alerts.
The decision to utilize the Ontario AMBER Alert is based on established criteria, and is not taken lightly.
In 2019, there has been five AMBER Alerts activated.
As a direct result of these Alerts, four assisted in the safe return of the child/children and one with the apprehension of a suspect. The OPP recognizes the inconvenience the Alert may have caused, but will not apologize for using all of the tools available to help locate a child. #AmberAlert
