Historically, most Australians tend to hold a suspicious view of the law and those that enforce it. We tend to view police presence as something to put up with rather than a presence that can provide us with solutions to our problems. At Complete Alarms we believe that this is a misconception and we will attempt to address it by giving lucid examples of how it is in fact misleading notion.


Police are never a burden when it comes to home security. How can they be when, as law enforcers, they are against all types of criminal activity including house break-ins? They are always for you and you should seek their expert assistance as soon as danger manifests itself. One very commendable aspect of police work is they work hard to protect your life and property at a risk to their own lives. They take an oath to protect citizens even if it costs them their very lives. We and you should be grateful and cooperate with them as much as we can.

Some of us think police are there only for responding to incidents and this is clearly not the case. They can also prevent crimes from happening. You can, for example, notify them of your departure from your home on business or vacation and ask them to conduct periodic checks on your house. The presence of police around your house is anathema to burglars.

In many places, police can be very proactive in protecting homes that they go the full length in providing free surveillance services for guarding property. The surveillance is usually supervised by a crime prevention officer. Liaise with the officer and inquire about the possibility of having your premises coming under their surveillance. He or she may also help you in implementing some security measures known only to them in doing surveillance work.

A recent, marvellous development for aiding surveillance work has been the creation of community policing. This method allows police not only to conduct systematic and efficient patrolling of neighbourhoods, but also involves them in proactive intermingling with their residents and in doing so, they build cordial relationships with them. Community policing has resulted in reduced crime rates. Take advantage of this police assistance. Build a common bond with police officers patrolling your neighbourhood and you will experience a downslide or even total prevention of break-ins into your home.

It is difficult to gauge how effective a do-it-yourself home security system to secure your home. However, what should not be disputed is the effectiveness of a combined police and personal security methods to keep burglars at bay.
