There have been reports in the Wellingborough area of telephone calls in connection with the fact that the Police do not respond to alarms in domestic properties automatically.
The caller appears to be a mature lady who offers to arrange for a representative to come to your house to survey the situation and propose a solution without cost or obligation so that you can have an alarm trigger answered and the police notified,
The names of the company mentioned in the calls have not been traced by us, and we would offer the advice to be careful. We have heard in the past of substantial charges for a monitored system who then advise the police of the alarm.
Should you be considering an alarm system we recommend contacting local companies preferably with a registration with a professional body.
