Burglar Alarms

False burglar alarms are very costly to the Police Department and to you as a taxpayer. Statistics have shown the cost of sending a police officer to an alarm ranges from $28.00 to $51.00.

If an officer is sent to your premises for a burglar alarm, and upon checking the perimeter it is determined that your alarm system generated a false alarm, the officer will leave a yellow “False Alarm Notification” on the handle of your entrance door.

This “False Alarm Notification” contains information about when the alarm was activated, and may contain comments for improving security at your premises.

If you have any questions or would like further information about burglar alarms, please contact the North Providence Police Department at 233-1433 between the hours of 8:00AM and 3:30PM, Monday through Friday.

Helpful Hints to Reduce False Alarms

• Install a system that is repairable or select an alarm company that provides quick service.
• Train all operators of the system to ensure that they are thoroughly familiar with it and that they are capable of using it.
• Have a user’s manual readily available to authorized persons.
• Check the system regularly to determine if there is damage to it or if it needs to be repaired, i.e.: (battery, motion detector, magnetic switches, etc.)
• Select designated responsible persons who reside or work nearby to reset the system.
