Beginning January 1, 2016 Roseville, CA police will start enforcing ECV (Enhanced Call Verification) on burglar alarm calls from alarm companies.
If a burglar alarm is activated, alarm companies are required to call the home or business at least two times (two different numbers) to see if authorities are needed at the location. This does not however apply to robbery or panic alarms, which officers always respond to.
When alarm monitoring companies call for police response to these alarms after January 1st, they will be asked if they already made two calls as required in their ordinance. Police may even ask for the two numbers, but if the alarm company states they have not made the two calls they will be told to make the two calls first, and then call back if police response is still necessary or requested by the contact.
