  • Verified Response and your cities ?

    So my question is has your cities that you live or work in gone to a Verified Response plan for alarm calls ? Utah has been doing it in most major cities for a VERY LONG time, i am just wondering if this has caugth trend anywhere else and for those that wonder what Verified Response is, here are a few links.....

    I believe vegas started doing VR since 91'
    Its not how we die that counts.....
    Its not how we lived that counts....
    all that matters is how we saved that one life that one time by being in the right place at the right time....

      The area I live in now is not on a verified response program... The number of alarm systems in this area is actually surprisingly low, so alarms take up very little time for the pd... We also do alarm response along with our patrol service, but we don't get very many of them either...

      When I lived/worked down in Portland, however, many of the suburbs had gone to verified response, and private alarm response was a HUGE business there... Still is, as far as I know..

        So are private security companies responding or does alarm company hire armed response security?

          It's up to the client. In a verified response situation, SOMEBODY has to go verify the alarm before the police will respond. They don't care who it is, as long as it isn't them. So the client is left with the choice of hiring somebody to do it, or take those 3am alarm calls themselves. Most choose to hire a private company to do it.

            cool maybe it'll bring up the Florida pay of armed security from $8.00 per hour in the capital city.

              I called the local alarm companies...seems they all have a listening or 2 way device (listen n talk), therefore vr isn't needed. wtf?

                They're talking about a device that basically allows them to remotely "listen in" at a locale to determine if they hear anyone moving about inside after the alarm is tripped. This works well for small businesses and single- or two-room locations... but isn't very effective in large buildings or many-roomed settings.

                    They're going to hire a contract security firm, not an individual guard.

                    Several firms do alarm response, usually in addition to their existing patrol services.

                      The St. Paul public schools were using sound alarms back in the 70s, and at least until 1985. I don't know what they're using now. Schools are pretty big buildings. They were fairly reliable although sometime the mics would pick up kids sitting in the doorways talking. We busted up a lot of under-aged drinking parties back then!
