A response is critical
every time an alarm is activated.

Alarm Response Program by Risk Services

False alarms can put stress on any security system and cost you time and additional expenses. However, an alarm not responded to can put your business at risk. If you respond to an alarm alone, you are putting your safety in jeopardy. With the Alarm Response Program, part of Risk Services, a trained security officer will respond to all your alarms.

The cost of the program is greatly discounted by enrolling through Jewelers Mutual.

$599.40/year (US)

$720/year (CAD)

We also waive the monthly service fee, saving you up to $1,100 for the year.

How the Alarm Response Program Works

1. In the event your alarm is activated, a Securitas security officer in your area is dispatched to your location.

2. The responding officer investigates the area and enacts the proper response by contacting your alarm monitoring company and local law enforcement as needed.

3. The security officer completes a report with details of the alarm response and takes photos of the protected location.

Alarm response testimonial

What the Jewelry Industry is Saying

It gave my client tremendous relief having the extra level of protection for them and their staff. The reaction time of the alarm response service made a believer out of both of us.”

– agent Stark Harbour, Assured Partners

“The Alarm Response Program has allowed me to free up my time. Now, I’m monitoring less stores, getting fewer calls from the alarms at the stores, and knowing that we are going to have somebody that, if there is a need, will respond.”

– Brian Stamey, International Diamond Center

“The biggest stressor in this industry is having an alarm issue. It’s probably the scariest thing we deal with and this program has alleviated that stress – not to mention the cost of all the police trips happening at our building.”

– Craig MacBean, Ostbye & Anderson
