Alarm Response Policy - Association of Chief Police Officers
Two major elements of this new policy are a more rigorous false alarm policy and the promotion of Alarm Confirmation in order to reduce the number of false alarms, specifically:
Following 2 false calls in a rolling 12-month period, the Police Response will be withdrawn
Any system which loses Police Response due to false alarms will only be reinstated to Police Response if the system employs Alarm Confirmation and is compliant to EN50131, PD6662 standard
Police Forces may charge currently up to £60 for the issue of a Unique Reference Number (URN), and all new URN applications will require the system user to complete a Health & Safety Risk Assessment of their premises
Should Personal Attack (PA) Response be withdrawn, the system will only be reinstated if Sequentially Verified Electronic Personal Attack Buttons are installed. The system must also comply with EN50131, PD6662 standard
As from now all new intruder systems installed must use Alarm Confirmation technology to qualify for Police Response.
Alarm Confirmation is a method by which additional signals are sent to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) to help identify genuine alarm activations.
Accepted methods of Confirmation are:
Certain combinations of Dual Signalling system activations.
