Sniffer Dog Alert Site Upgrading

from the gotta-keep-up dept

People started wondering if a civil liberties group in Australia was pressured by the government to take down their “sniffer dog alert” system. The system sends SMS alerts to registered users to tell them when police are patrolling a certain area with drug sniffing dogs. For obvious reasons, the site has been a bit on the controversial side – so people assumed that they had been forced to shut down when the site went offline. Instead, the creators of the site say they’re simply upgrading to deal with all the traffic.
