Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
IMPORTANT: AMBER Alert Reminder
Named after the 1996 abduction of a 9-year-old Texan girl, AMBER Alert is a notification system activated by police services when a child under 18 is missing and there is a credible threat to their safety. Public messages are broadcast / displayed in hopes of quickly gathering tips from the public.
- Broadcast on radio, TV and online through the CRTC, social media and other agencies, AMBER Alerts typically include descriptors for: victim, suspects, vehicles, locations, potential routes, destinations.
- If you observe, or know something about the child, suspects or the vehicles involved, immediately call 911, or CRIME STOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
