Audible alarms

We do not attend audible alarm activations for properties or vehicles unless there is evidence from a person at the scene that a criminal offence is in progress, or there is additional information of people acting suspiciously, broken windows, signs of forced entry or lights on inside the property.

Most properties with an alarm will be linked to an alarm monitoring company who will inform the police of an activation.

If the alarm is repeatedly and persistently sounding this could be considered a noise nuisance.

You can find more helpful information in the NPCC and  Secured by Design security systems policy . The Security Systems Policy is a public document designed to give details of police response and the requirements for the private security industry involved in providing the installation, maintenance and monitoring of such systems.

If you believe a property or vehicle is in the process of being broken into, call us on 999.
