Thats what ive done in the past if the door is busted etc. I would not enter not going to risk my life cause someone wants free parts the only time i enter is to reset the alarm and leave.

True sad story stand up for your self and they lost there job

Not sure of the job market there but I'd find something else.

So your life isn't worth $50.00 to the company, isn't that lovely to know. Plus if they find out you were on their property armed, they'd probably fire ya over it.

You're in a tough spot. Rank/Salary has its privileges , so to speak. I guess it's great to be able to vent here, but the bottom line is that this is part of your job...enjoy or find other work.
Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

This would not be a problem for me. Alarm company calls me, I call 911 to report the alarm, show up at work an hour later. Until the company trains me to be a SWAT member and arms me like same, it's up to the police to investigate. I'll be waiting outside--one hour later.
As for fines for false alarms, that's up to the company to repair/install a reliable system.

I know it is a tough job market and many employers act like that, but you need to be looking for a job that doesn't risk your life--- unless you are into the adrenaline thing.
This is why jobs should be "at will" instead of unionized.
Another example of why employment at will should have gone with the horse and buggy.
It will give you more freedom to find an employer with more concern for your safety. If anyone thinks unionization would allow en employee to carry a weapon to work, they are smoking crack as a hobby. Unions are anti-gun and always support the liberal democrats. That sounds like a prescription for anti-gun to me.

If I were in that position I'd be telling my boss/ the company to go pound dirt til they get to china and find another job. I can definitely understand why you may be hesitant to do so tho with the current economic situation and you may not want to or be willing to give up your seniority.
I wish you the best of luck in getting this ridiculous policy changed or finding a safer and closer job.

Are you forbidden from contacting the police at all? Check the perimeter and if all secure go home. If a door/window is open call the pros.
