Banham’s Personal Attack Filtering Policy
In keeping with the intention and spirit of the Association of Chief Police Officers’ Security Systems Policy and in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police, Banham initiated a method of filtering Personal Attack signals that is effective in reducing the number of false alarms passed to the Police.
This has two positive results. Firstly it prevents the waste of limited Police resources and secondly it protects our customers from having Police response withdrawn.
Since its implementation Banham has seen an overall reduction in the number of Personal Attack false alarms passed to the Police of over 40%. Banham is proud of this additional service, which we provide to all our Alarm Receiving Centre customers at NO EXTRA CHARGE.
To date we know of only one other company that also offers this service. However, their version of this service is not FREE.
The Association of Chief Police Officers have included this filtering procedure into their policy and it is now a requirement before systems can be reinstated to full Police response.
In recognition of his efforts and initiative in developing and implementing this system, our Alarm Receiving Manager, has been presented with a special award by the Metropolitan Police.
