Will the new Verified Response Laws make your security system obsolete?

Intrusion There is a new wave in law enforcement sweeping across the country called Verified Response (VR) and many cities have already enacted a policy. What is the impact?

Questions to Consider:
  • Will the police come?
  • How long will it take?
  • Will your company send you into a potentially dangerous situation?
  • Is your company ready?
WHAT is Verified Response?
Each city’s policy varies slightly but nearly all of them require the following core components:
  • Alarm owners and/or private security companies bear the responsibility of verifying that the alarm is not false and that an intrusion is actually taking place before the police will be dispatched
  • Verification is accomplished either through a private security guard or through electronic surveillance (audio and/or video)
