Community Message - Bogus calls from an alleged burglar alarm company
Police have received information that elderly residents are being targeted with telephone calls from an alleged burglar alarm company claiming that the police do not respond to calls from people with older burglar alarms. This is not the case as Thames Valley Police (TVP) respond to all Burglar alarms reported to them by alarm companies unless they are in breach of an alarm attendance policy which only affects faulty alarms which results in numerous false alarm calls to the police. Please be vigilant when dealing with these calls and take advice from TVP by contacting reputable alarm companies.
If you are concerned about this issue then call 101 and let us know.
