If you have received a notification from your serving Police Force containing their notice to withdraw your Police Response Unique Reference Number (URN), you only have a short period of time to find an alternative provider. This is often because your existing alarm provider has not acted in accordance with the Police Guidelines and/or those of an Industry Regulator. Even though this is through no fault of your own, the loss of Police Response (even after an actual alarm notification) is the result and, unfortunately, regardless of the money you have already paid.
Many alarm companies who have suffered the ultimate sanction of losing their Police Compliance status (which has badly affected their customers) therefore try to convince you that a “private response” to your house in the form of Manguard or Guarded Response is the “better” option. This is simply not true; Police Response to your property, should always be your first priority, because anything less than a Level 1 Response by your serving Police Force, is considered inferior by comparison.
The good news is that Connect 4 Security are a trustworthy alternative alarm provider that can facilitate in you retaining your Police Response. We are listed as a Police Recognised Installer with many Police Forces across the country, respectfully adhering to the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) Policy Guidelines regarding Alarm Systems.
