Why Detroit needs Alarm Response Services



If this Detroit Bar had an Alarm Response Company such as ours, SavIsa Solutions, LLC, they could have saved thousands of dollars. The thieves may have been able to break in, but they would have been in more of a hurry to get out of there. They would not have had time to go back at their leisure. Our response time is faster than the Detroit Police Department in B&E’s. The DPD quit responding to alarms in Detroit in 2011. Under their new policy , a security company’s staff or building owner must go to the scene to confirm the alarm and the person who verifies the break-in must wait there until the officer arrives. If the security staff member can verify the break-in via video or audio, they must relay the details to 911 operators and the call will be recorded and handed over to police within twenty four hours of the incident. If you need Alarm Response Verification services, call us! We also offer Detroit Security Patrol and Stationary Security! Click here to see all of our Detroit Security Services.

Detroit’s New Verified Alarm Response Policy underfire

Published by Crystal on August 28th, 2011 - in alarm response

Critics blast Detroit’s new verified response policy

More negative feedback regarding Detroit’s new verified alarm response policy.  Interesting and statistically informative article.Click here to read more

Police Chief Ralph Godbee wrote in a memo Ninety-eight percent of the burglar alarms that police respond to are false alarms.

According to the office of Detroit Mayor Dave Bing he is quoted stating “Forty-two percent of the false alarms are at businesses, 51 percent at residences and 6 percent at other structures, such as garages or warehouses “

“But city and police officials said the decision is backed by statistics that show a high rate of false alarms. They contend that shifting police resources to other areas is a better way to make the city safer”

According to reports this is a shift that will allocate police officers in an attempt to make the city safer. Detroit already has a dark cloud of not being safe over its head.  For attracting new businesses and other types of events this will only make them question their security.

The new verified policy in Detroit will only endanger business owners and their employees.  There are Alarm Response companies that will respond to all Alarms, for example, BCI Security has been responding to alarms for over twenty plus years and has qualified personnel to verify all types of alarms.  BCI Security has personnel to guard property if required and board-up services as well.

Detroit Police Departments Verified Alarm Response has Started

Verified Alarm Response

As of August 22th, 2011 the new program that was short in development and quickly put into place has officially started. After being delayed from  on August 15th, 2011 (one week after the original date that it was supposed to take place).  See Document

As detailed in the document there was little time for the many Alarm Companies that service the Metro Detroit vast area a chance to provide their customers with alternatives.  The brief delay (one week) was in-part an attempt to provide Alarm Companies a chance to brain storm alternatives.  The short delay provided  commercial business owners an opportunity for them to draw straws to see who gets to verify alarm calls, as well giving residents with alarm systems the opportunity to buy antacid tablets as they worry about their safety.

“The verified alarm response is new policy of not responding to burglar alarms unless security companies can verify the need for an officer. However, officers will be sent to a building where an alarm wasn’t verified if it is a government building or part of the city’s critical infrastructure, a panic alarm, robbery/hold up alarm, an alarm at a firearms dealer or at an Underwriters Laboratories site, police said.”  Detroit police’s scaled down alarm response strategy begins today.

The new Verified Alarm Response policy has many left  in the dark and skeptical of why exactly they are paying taxes if they can’t count on the Detroit Police to response for their alarms.

There are alternatives to having the Detroit Police responding to alarms.  SavIsa Security has been providing alarm response to commercial and residential customers for over 20+ years, with over 44 years in the Security and Investigative Businesses for Investigations  click here for their website.   However the calls have been pouring in and their development is quick to undertake the task as the new alarm response division for the over tasked Detroit Police Department.

SavIsa Security has an established patrol network through out the Metro Detroit area and is equipped with skilled and experienced Alarm Response / Patrol Drivers with similar technology that each Detroit Police Department cruiser has.Alarm Response BCI Security Patrol cruiser InteriorBCI Security Patrol cruiser

The cost of their service is relatively low considering the alternative, SavIsa Security requires a monthly retainer of $25.00 first month waived when using a credit card to sign-up with a one year agreement and $35.00 per alarm dispatch. Don’t be fooled by imitations, with SavIsa Security you get exactly what you sign up for (Guaranteed Alarm Response)
SavIsa Security  works with dozens of Metro Detroit Alarm Best Companies. See post for Alarm Companies and their Ratings

Detroit Police will NOT respond to Alarms

Today the Detroit Police Department announced they would not respond to alarms unless the alarms are verified by a Security Patrol Guard, homeowner, or if the building is monitored by audio or video. If audio or video is the source, it must be recorded and saved.

“According to the memo, sent to alarm companies and signed by Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee, 98 percent of alarms handled by the DPD are false.”
