The Grand Canyon state meets with fear. The sudden induction of blue alert on phones of its citizens scared them all. Authorities issued a Blue Alert Thursday following a shooting in a Phoenix residential area involving an Arizona state trooper. The Report states-A suspect of seventeen has already been apprehended, but there is a second suspect at large. The people of Arizona were puzzling, after the notification.

Notification baffled the citizens

Citizens of Arizona were in a state of fear after the sudden alerts on their phones.  Through television and the Wireless Emergency Alert System (WEA), messages reached to people of Arizona. The initial alert said just “Blue Alert Warning in this area until 11:38PM UMST Monitor Radio or TV.”

What is a Blue Alert?

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety‘s website, the purpose of the Blue warning system is to notify the public right away that there’s been a violent assault on law enforcement and the suspect is on the outer.
As stated by the ABA President Chris Kleine-“In general, these emergency alerts are to do two things: protect the public and protect public servants.”
Berry launched the system in2008 as a former military officer. Recognized by FederalAgencies later in 2015.

The alert is flooded with queries about the system, states Berry, being issued so rarely every time it is sent out.

Many other alerts targeting a given area-like Amber Alerts are not so rare.-Told Berry. But if you don’t want to receive one you have the choice to do so- “Simply go to the settings and turn it off.”

Why were people in chaos?

Department of Public Safety later talked about the chaos created among people. “It lacked detailed data, clarifying in a tweet that as of Thursday afternoon, the police were still seeking help locating a silver 2008-2013 Infiniti G37 with custom wheels.”

Some people tweeted that on Thursday night they had got an additional Blue Alert. But Dps in reply said -It could be a problem with certain service providers.
