The boy is said to have called the police twice after being served a salad by a parent, which wasn't to their liking.
Police did respond to the call and although they were happy to talk to the child about their dislike of the food, they chose to highlight the importance of not misusing the emergency services.
In the statement, Dal Hutchinson says:
While many can relate to the dislike of a salad at times, this raises a more important issue that warrants discussion at all ages.
The improper use of 911 is an issue with all age groups and it ties up valuable resources, preventing emergency first responders from dealing with real emergencies.
There you go kids. Next time you are presented with a meal that you don't like don't be afraid about complaining but perhaps discuss it with your parent or guardian and allow the police to catch criminals instead.
Also, consider giving salad a go. It's actually really good for you.
