Alarm advice from the police

Dear <<First Name>>
Consumer Advice from the police Regarding Intruder Alarms.
If you are considering installing a burglar alarm, then it is suggested that you contact
The Alarms Team at Avon and Somerset Constabulary (01278 646 644)
 
There are companies who promote their security installations by advising that police do not respond to alarm activations. This statement is incorrect. If you are considering a security installation with the requirement of a police response, The Alarms Team can offer guidance and advice on how this can be achieved.
 
There are many different types of security systems which can offer you the security you require, these can vary in price and vary in the end result. If you receive a phone call from a security company offering you a deal, please remember that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it invariably is. Consumer advice reminds us to always shop around and compare prices and the purchase of electronic security is no different.
 
Avoid:
• Door 2 Door Salespeople attending your house who are not invited.
• Telesales persons telephoning your home.
• Waiving your rights to a cooling off period.
• Overpriced security systems and unclear contracts.
