or they're found by good samaritans which has always been the case...
For as long as top police officers or/and deputy ministers themselves keep saying the same things without showing any real understanding or progress on the issue i.e. NUR (National Urgent response) Alert, we might as well bury this early warning system, for good.
Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin:
"We know there are flaws. But what is important is that the system exists and is ready to be used. It is a matter of execution.
We have teething problems, but we are working on them to minimize errors.
Many do not understand this. It is not as easy as that (to activate the alert). We do not just use NUR Alert in every case as there are many factors to be considered, among them, legal implications and the risks involved if information is published without a proper investigation."When a child has been confirmed to have been abducted, you can be sure, he is not in safe hands. So, you have to start disseminating info about him or her.
That is what NUR Alert is about. So that everyone knows about the missing child and can help the police locate him or her quickly BEFORE he is harmed further, or killed.
For as long as the police and politicians beat around the bush over why NUR Alert is not effective, you will never be able to save a missing child.
And please stop talking about "fine-tuning" the system. The system is there. It is the process that you have to put into effect.
Meanwhile, tell me -- how many missing children have you saved/rescued?
