Amendment to ACPO Policy On Police Response

ACPO (The Association of Chief Police Officers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) is amending its policy on police response to security systems with effect from 1 January 2013.

Part of the amendment relates to police administration charges (see Appendix E of the policy) when a new occupier/owner of premises takes over an existing intruder and hold-up alarm system that is on police response or where an existing occupier/owner decides to change their security company.

If the system has both intruder and personal attack elements a reduced administration fee of £65.23 + VAT will be payable from 1 January 2013 rather than the usual fee of 2 x £43.49 + VAT = £86.98 + VAT, which is welcomed.

For further details please refer to the amended ACPO policy, which will be available from the “Secured by Design” website after 1 January 2013.
