Dunwoody investigates early morning alert calls

The City of Dunwoody and Dunwoody Police Department apologize for the early morning freeze alert issued by Nixle.

The City of Dunwoody and Dunwoody Police Department issued the following statement on Thursday, October 31 at 9:30 a.m.
"We apologize that most of you received a phone call and/or text message around 4:15 this morning alerting you to a freeze warning for our area that starts late tonight. This alert was an automatic alert from the National Weather Service that was distributed through Nixle. The Dunwoody Police Department manages the Nixle Alert System and is working with Nixle to investigate why an alert of this nature went out so early in the morning. This was an automatic alert and not one that involved police personnel. We also understand that several recipients of the alert are not Dunwoody residents or have never signed up for Dunwoody alerts through Nixle. Please know that we are working to ensure all future alerts are restricted to citizen safety and emergencies as the system is intended."
