Local law enforcement is tasked with protecting the public and responding when alarms have been sounded. Unfortunately, this is an impossible feat. In a world where law enforcement budgets are stretched thin, and more and more taxpayer dollars and police time are wasted on false alarms, local departments have instituted strict protocol for responding to alarms.
This means that fewer police officers are actually coming to homes to investigate suspected break-ins when an alarm is triggered. To make matters worse, if you’ve enrolled with an alarm monitoring service, chances are that the monitoring station is provinces away from your property. This results in delayed response times and extreme difficulty in identifying the genuine emergencies from the false alarms.
Is there any way to actually have a uniformed security officer come to your home within minutes?
24/7 Alarm Response Services from SecuriWORLD: A Renewed State of Protection
As a private citizen, you should expect law enforcement to respond timely to your alarm, but, as mentioned, this is not a reasonable expectation. Alarm response services guarantee a response within minutes. It’s the only way to guarantee a uniformed security officer actually comes to your house. If it’s a false alarm, the officer will make a report. If it’s a verified break-in, the officer will escalate the issue, secure the perimeter, and have any suspects on-site arrested.
According to the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 97% of the city’s 30,000 burglary alarms were false in 2004. (source)
With the majority of alarms being false, you cannot expect police to always respond.
The Most Cost-Effective Solution to Security:
With advanced technology available at low prices, you can have a comprehensive security system installed at your home for pennies on the dollar. The only thing that this system is missing is a uniformed response. The police can no longer be counted on to respond (for good reason), so the only personnel willing to come to your home and make sure everything is OK are private guards.
Local law enforcement cannot be relied on for alarm response and a 24/7 private guard at your home is beyond most household’s budget, so having a security officer on call when the alarm is sounded is the only way to bridge the gap. If you do not plan ahead for this scenario, there’s a good chance that help arrives too late or not at all in the event of a break-in.
