Burglar Alarms Photo of Stockton Police Officers

A home without an alarm is six times more likely to be burglarized as 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.


The Police Department responds to approximately 1,300 alarms per month; 98 out of 100 of these alarms are false.
