For many years, our city struggled with the drain placed on our patrol resources from responding to chronic false alarms. Although we implemented an alarm ordinance in the early 1990s, the program met with limited success at best. To have an effective alarm program, we knew we needed to update our ordinance and outsource its administration to a reliable vendor.
From the first day, CitySupport has been very helpful and professional. They worked closely with me and my staff, and the transition was very smooth. They downloaded false alarm data daily and promptly sent out invoices, which had an immediate effect on our chronic false alarms. Each year, the number of false alarms decreased. Additionally, our department was able to eliminate one full-time clerical position at a significant savings. The best part of working with CitySupport was that there were no upfront or on-going costs to the department.
It has been a pleasure working with CitySupport, and I highly recommend their outsourcing services for your alarm program.

Like many departments across the country, the ever increasing number of false alarms has negatively impacted our patrol and support operations. We learned about CitySupport while researching methods to address our false alarm problem, and decided to contract with them to administer our alarm permit and billing system. CitySupport has been very responsive to our needs, and outsourcing that portion of our alarm program has been a huge benefit to our organization.

Like most municipal police departments, we are constantly looking for ways to make best use of dwindling resources. One of our more successful projects is our alarm program. In 2006 we made the decision to outsource the administration of the program while we concentrated on deployment and response. CitySupport has done an excellent job with handling the permits and false alarm billings, and their easy to use web based database allow us to identify problem alarms and respond appropriately. They truly provide a turn-key solution to the administrative side of our alarm program, and in all of our dealings with them they have been very professional and accommodating.
Prior to outsourcing, our alarm program was a drain on our resources, and it was very difficult to get accurate information to our patrol supervisors. Since contracting with CitySupport, we have off-loaded all of the administrative burdens, and we now know exactly what is happening with the alarms in our city. This public-private partnership has been very successful. Not only does the program generate income at no cost to our budget, identifying chronic abusers has allowed us to reduce the amount of false alarms we respond to.
