What happens if my system has many false alarms?
A system that has four or more false alarms in a calendar year will be subject to being placed on “verified response” status by the Chief of Police. Verified response means that the Police Department will no longer respond to future alarms at this site. Any alarm must then be verified by a representative of the user or of the central monitoring service as being a true emergency before the Police will be dispatched. (Verified status does not apply to holdup, panic or duress alarms.) The Chief of Police may remove any alarm system from verified response status upon receipt of evidence that the problems causing the false alarms have been corrected.
