Do not place yourself or others in a dangerous situation or attempt to interfere in police related business based on the information that you receive from the Alertizen Program. If you have information relating to a text message, or you witnessed an event for which you received a text message, please contact the Police Department.
B. Data. The data you received from Alertizen is the initial information provided from a caller to 911. This information may change or be updated as a situation progresses. Please also be aware that the information provided to 911 as you see it in the text message may not be accurate. For example, the address provided to 911 may not be the actual, verifiable address of the property in question. The data you receive through Alertizen is for informational purposes only.
