  1. How many Cities have tried Verified Response and then found B&E's went up or have cancelled the Verified Response program?

    And just how busy do you think the police would be if ALL of us said for one day: "We will not call anyone when the alarm goes off?"

    if you mean calling the premise to verify, I thought everybody does that.

    one day: "We will not call anyone when the alarm goes off?"
    The term "verified response" is being used by municipalities that have a
    sensitive political flavor within the community. What it really means in "no
    response". They don't want their citizens to go ballistic. They will
    respond, but only after someone else goes first (guard company) and then
    calls if there is a problem, hence "verifying" prior to response.

    There are more cities than you want to think about that have gone to some
    sort of verified response. SIAC has statistics about the crime rate
    question. If you talk to them, which I tend to lean towards their standing
    on the issue since they are joined at the hip with the IACP, they will tell
    you that crime has escalated dramatically in these cities. If you talk to
    the cities, again for political reasons, they will tell you every thing in
    great. It is great because they have cut their budget so they look like
    heroes while shuffling the paperwork to hide the rising crime rate.

    That is correct. However, over the years of gathering statistics from both
    sides, public pressure and with new local government administrations, there
    are those that are reconsidering their decission about going to verified
    response including Salt Lake City, which I believe was the first to go to
    There is no such thing as a false dispatch. Unnecessary dispatch maybe.
    Not to mention putting the runners in harms way

    RHC: Here's one for the books, and this is a true story. Recently a
    local alarm dealer called the police when he heard a couple of kids
    breaking into his garage. As unbelievable as it sounds, they told him
    they had no squad car available, and he should just file a report the
    next morning. After he hung up, he thought about it for a bit, got
    angry, and then called 911. He said something to the effect ...:"
    there are a couple of thugs breaking into my garage, and you better
    get over here right away before they get shot"... Within a minute of
    two, there were FIVE squad cars at his home, cherries going, lighting
    up the neighborhood like a midway circus.

    They caught the kids all right, then gave him a LOT of trouble over
    it. It seems he missed getting arrested for mischief, or some some
    charge, by the skin of his teeth....

    You really have to wonder where their priorities lie......

    Naah. By the time a runner arrives the thief has left and the goods

    We had a break-in at a warehouse last week. We did everything we were
    contracted to...we dispatched pd, then called the building owner who told us
    to cancel dispatch and he was gonna go. He did, but he didn't go inside
    (good thing). He didn't notice the broken window because it was dark and he
    just drove around the outside of the building...then went home. At 8am the
    owner's partner calls in and is pissed because they got broken into and the
    police didn't go...hah! So I ran over there with my cs report, did a system
    check etc.

    It really was a good thing the partner that responded did NOT go inside
    because the burglars were still inside.

    Why did he cancel dispatch?...because he was afraid of false alarm fine.
    Bare in mind we've protected this place for 10 years now and we've NEVER had
    an unexplained false alarm...any we had were all user error.

    I got to sell them a new exterior fire gong...idiot burlars ripped it for fire.

    Actually, we agree on many things. I just don't find it necessary to comment
    on something you add to the NG in which I agree. It is when I don't agree
    with what you posts that I comment and that usually frost your balls.

    Hence, public pressure starts to rise and the revisiting of the city's
    ordinance becomes a reality.

    Now you get the point.

    I disagree and would disagree with everything you say .... even if I
    didn't and I wouldn't hesitate a minute to say so and in the process
    tell you to drop fucking dead too.
    Even if you ever had any balls, (and considering your fucked up life,
    you don't) you haven't seen them or been able to reach them for so
    many years .... you wouldn't be able to tell now anyway.

    And Oh yeah, Drop fucking dead ..... soon.

    Let me see.... If I don't post, to that of which I agree, and you only
    disagree with what I do post, what is it that make me wrong? Further proof
    that you are naturally confrontational.
    You couldn't care less what anyone thinks. Again, that is just your
    My guess is that you never had any until you found NG's.
