There has been a steady increase in the availability of DIY intruder alarms, personal attack alarms and CCTV systems, many of which have the ability to activate alarms and automatically send signals/messages to people’s landline and mobile telephones and computers.
The police will not attend the venue unless:
There is some additional indication from a person at the scene that a criminal offence is in progress, which indicates that a police response is required.
Any additional electronic confirmation of the alarm activation will not achieve police response.
Should your neighbours hear your alarm activate they should pass on the information using the 101 or 999 as appropriate. The police will only attend if they are satisfied that a criminal offence is in progress.
