Law Enforcement, Security Industry Ties Reinforced at NBFAA False Alarm Management Event
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A mix of security alarm professionals and law enforcement officials were able to discuss what various cities are doing to reduce false alarms at the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA)-sponsored Mid-Atlantic Security/Law Enforcement Roundtable in Washington, D.C. Held in late November, the event brought approximately 30 attendees who heard presentations from leaders in the public and private sector as well as an interactive roundtable discussion.
A highlight of the event was a presentation on how the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s use of a third party to handle all billing and collections has freed the department’s police officers. Members from other police departments included the Delaware Department of Public Safety, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office and the Arlington (Va.) Police Department.
Attendees at the event were also informed that both Loudoun County and the New Jersey state police have looked into verified response as an alternative to a traditional ordinance initiative. And a representative from the Delaware Department of Public Safety is a member of the group that will be deciding the future of police response in the state.
