So a guy dressed in khakis, a golf shirt and dress shoes inspecting the outside of his home after an alarm is a threat to a LEO in what way?

As a LEO you are responding to a notification of an alarm signal at a private residence in Texas. Does it even cross your mind that the home owner might be on the premises and might be armed?
Are you saying that I shouldn't have the gun or the police shouldn't be notify because I own guns or both because the LEOs might shoot me in my own home for having a gun?
Do the LEOs in your area enter privately owned houses with no visible signs of forced entry just because they got a call that there was an alarm?
Do the LEOs in your area ignore the people in the car parked in front of the driveway?
I guess I just might have a little more faith in the LEOs ability to do their jobs correctly than you seem to want to give them.

The police wont even respond to a residential alarm here, they will only come out if the homeowner finds signs of entry or if the alarm company has a response unit and they find signs of entry.

I know that this will vary tremendously by location and many other factors, but does any one know the "average" response time for say a call involving a potential home invasion? is there any national average statistic for this? Any LEOs here, can you estimate your average response time?

Last time our alarm went off it took >40 minutes for the cops to show up. I made it from 8 miles away sitting at my office desk, through 3 school zones, with over 20 minutes to spare. That was after my wife called 911 to report an obvious entry at a kicked in window.

The police departments are inundated with these types of calls and most of the time are not a high priority. They will get there when time permits as they know most of these calls are false alarms. I have an alarm system but it is not wired to an alarm company hence no P.D. response unless I call or a neighbor sees something. If I have to call the P.D. they will have a reason to come out to pick a perp up.
