A home without an alarm is six times more likely to be burglarized as a home with a burglar alarm. At the same time, false alarms can become a nuisance. Often, emergency calls are placed on hold while officers respond to false alarms.
The Police Department responds to approximately 1,300 alarms per month; 98 out of 100 of these alarms are false.
