    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!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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..
