The Community Safety Newsletter aims to keep residents informed about what the Community Safety Partnership has been involved with in Chiltern and South Bucks districts in the last month.
Burglar Alarm Companies List
Around 60% of burglaries carried out on homes fitted with burglar alarms are unsuccessful. This suggests that burglar alarms are a useful deterrent for opportune criminals.
The British Security Industry Association suggests that householders use a professional alarm installation company registered with a police recognised 'alarm inspectorate.' Ask to see your security company's registration documents, and look for the following accreditation:
- SSAIB - Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board
- NSI - National Security Inspectorate
