The Grand Prairie Police Department video alarm response initiative is aimed at reducing crime, increasing criminal apprehensions and lowering the number of false alarms. GPPD's response will remain unchanged to all traditional burglar alarms; however, responses to video alarms will be given a higher priority as these new alarm systems utilize technology to increase efficiency of available resources.

The vast majority of traditional alarm calls are false alarms with low arrest rates.  In contrast, monitored video alarms can help confirm an actual burglary in-progress and have much higher arrest rates.  This video alarm initiative partners law enforcement, homeowners, business owners, the alarm industry and insurance companies toward the reduction of property losses and increased safety and security in our community.
