Detroit Police To Cut Back On Alarm Response | CBS Detroit.

“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.

Effective Monday, August 22, the police department will no longer respond to burglar alarm calls from monitoring companies unless the alarm company verifies the alarm.”

 

Uhhh…… isn’t that the point of having an alarm service?  To dispatch the police?  98% is a high rate of false alarms, but there has to be another way to solve that problem without completely cutting off police responses “unless they are verified….” which the article goes on to admit, is a very difficult and expensive process.
