The new model will take effect on Sept. 10 this year.

According to the new guidelines:

  • The Toronto Police Service will no longer respond to alarms solely on the request of alarm monitoring stations
  • The verification requirement will apply to burglar alarm activations
  • Panic Alarms will NOT be included in the verified response requirement

More information is available via the CANASA website, including the official notification from Toronto Police chief Mark Saunders.
