Burglar Alarm

Every burglar alarm is a real alarm.  Every time.  You can't let yourself become complacent when responding to burglar alarm.  There are two million residential burglaries reported in the United States each year.

One of those burglaries may be your next burglary alarm call.  About 95% of the time when a burglar alarm sounds, it's not a burglary.  With statistics like that, most officers think they won't find a burglar inside when they respond.  Today, most alarm companies will phone the house and try and cancel the police response if it was tripped accidentally. 

Drive quietly and turn your lights out as you get close.  Park down the street.  Close the door softly.  Approach the location without being seen.  Look for people in parked cars who may be the get away driver. Use your flashlight sparingly if at all.  Check all around the location, every door and window.  Treat them like they are real, sooner or later, one of them will be; that's what the SGT Says.
