Vermont State Police to test state's Amber Alert system on 12/4/2008

Vermont State Police will test the state's Amber Alert system on Thursday morning.

This will be only the third test of the system since it was installed several years ago. Activation responsibilities have moved from offices in Waterbury, to offices in Rockingham, so police want to make sure there are no glitches.

Vermont's Amber Alert system has only been used once, during the search for Brooke Bennett this summer. State Police say that incident revealed some glitches that have now been fixed.
"One of the benefits that came out of that was we were contacted by a number of different entities, including CCTA, the post office, the postal service and a couple of others who actually want to be on the direct activation list, so they want to get that information first and they will distribute it amongst their people," said Vermont State Police Lt. Mark Lauer.

Police plan to run the test Thursday 12/4/08 at around 10 a.m. It will look like a real alert, except that there will be a note at the end and beginning indicating it is a test.
