The Virginia Beach Police Department needs your help to free up valuable public safety resources. When properly used, burglar, panic and robbery alarms serve as useful deterrents to crime. Burglar alarms not only help reduce your chances of being burglarized, but also can reduce the amount of property lost in a burglary. 

However, false alarms delay officer’s response to actual criminal complaints.

The key to Virginia Beach’s false alarm reduction success is alarm user knowledge of their security systems and working with their alarm monitoring company to make sure it is working correctly.
