Toronto to adopt verified response for alarms

The Toronto Police Service is moving to a verified response model for burglar alarm activations, according to the Canadian Security Association (CANASA).

The new model will take effect on Sept. 10 this year.

According to the new guidelines:

• The Toronto Police Service will no longer respond to alarms solely on the request of alarm monitoring stations
• The verification requirement will apply to burglar alarm activations
• Panic Alarms will NOT be included in the verified response requirement

More information is available via the CANASA website, including the official notification from Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders.
