Toronto Police Service Announces Verified Response Effective September 10, 2018
Effective September 10, 2018, the Toronto Police Service will be fully implementing a “verified response” requirement for all burglar alarm activations. As such, a revised Alarm Policy will be issued. This method of response has been found to be an effective way to reduce police attendance at false alarm related calls for service; allowing for a more effective deployment of police resources.
What does this mean?
• The Toronto Police Service will no longer respond to alarms solely on the request of alarm monitoring stations
• The verification requirement will apply to burglar alarm activations
• Panic Alarms will NOT be included in the verified response requirement
