Alarm Going Off

The Police will attend alarms installed in line with the NPCC Alarms Policy. The majority of domestic alarms do not comply with that policy by virtue of the fact they are audible only systems.

Houses blueThe Police will also respond to domestic alarms when there is some evidence of criminal activity though. Should there be an activation and there is evidence of criminal activity or you see something suspicious, dial 999. It is not advisable to put yourself in danger by making checks yourself.

If it appears to be a false activation, still contact the police but on their non-emergency number - 101 - as they may have the owners contact details on their database.

If it is a persistent problem see the related information about noisy neighbours.
