The Fight Against False Burglar Alarms

The negative impact of false burglar alarms cannot be overstated. They waste scarce police resources and make typical burglar alarms ineffective to protect homes and businesses.

A city in California just approved what is being called the “most aggressive no-response policy” in an effort to combat the problem. I think the ordinance demonstrates the high level of frustration by communities across the country with unverified alarms.

I am so proud of Sonitrol Pacific’s commitment to verification through either audio or video technology. We have the best technology monitored by the best operators and this means we keep our valid dispatch rate high.

Verified alarms, always had it, always will.
