Burglar Alarms Photo of Stockton Police Officers

A home without an alarm is six times more likely to be burglarized than a home with a burglar alarm. At the same time, false alarms can become a nuisance. Often, emergency calls are placed on hold while officers respond to false alarms.

  • Police Department responds to about 1,300 alarms per month
  • 98 out of 100 of these alarms are false.
