Dallas Alarm Ordinance Finalized: Verified Response for Businesses

8-5 vote in Dallas City Council secures new ordinance that requires verified response


Council member Gary Griffith noted that an armed security force not sworn Dallas police officers protects City Hall and other city-owned facilities.

If similar personnel respond to commercial burglar alarms, "I'm very comfortable with that," Mr. Griffith said. "We're putting ourselves in the same kind of system that we're doing for commercial businesses."
