Perhaps in your agency. I have witnessed response to my father's house and how long it took. Also, I know for a fact the demeanor of the officer I called changed when I told him I was on vacation. Plus, I know when I got the call from the responding officer at my house. Whether it was because it was the middle of the night or because of my call, I don't know. But their response was different. When they found out there had actually been a crime committed, they brought the whole agency. My friend told me there must have been 20 officers there. And I live in a county with a population of like 15000.
that just because the homeowner is contacted and tells police or alarm company they are not home does not mean LEOs will get there any quicker, we respond to all alarms the same way...normal speed, no lights and/or sirens
