Here is an approach one department takes... Quebec provincial police, increasingly bogged down with tips and complaints about such urban legends, are trying an innovative approach to nipping the tales in the bud.The police have added a link on their website devoted to educating Quebecers about urban legends and hoaxes in hope the public will do a bit of research before forwarding dubious messages.
Or should they ignore them and hope the public doesn't freak out?
Here is an example: http://www.crime-safety-security.com/Myths-and-Urban-Legends.html and Urban Legends vs Myth Busters
