A Mississauga teen has been warned not to waste the time of Ontario Provincial Police after she called 911 to report that her “parents forced her to go on vacation with them.”
According to Metro News, officers responded to a rental cottage on the Trent River, east of Peterborough only to determine that there was no emergency and their time had been wasted by a 15-year-old girl.
Northumberland OPP Const. Stephen Bates said that “This appeared to be a case of a teenager being a teenager. Although she perceived this as a real issue, it was not an appropriate use of 911.”
“Calls such as this tie up police resources which could impact the safety of others in the community who are in real need of assistance,” Bates added.
