Officers are dispatched and respond to all residential and business alarms throughout the city. Once arrival on scene is made, officers assess the exterior security by checking all doors and windows along with other points of entry or exit. Officers clear and secure any open doors or windows found. Once the building is secure they ensure that contact is made with authorized persons to verify the security of the home or business. In the event that an alarm was intentionally tripped officers conduct investigations and file reports as necessary.
