Why is Beaumont concerned about false alarms?

In 2016, there were 295 false alarms in Beaumont. All alarms received by Beaumont RCMP Detachment require an officer to respond. Even in cases where police might be called and soon after canceled by the property representative, valuable police resources are diverted to take the initial complaint, initiate a police response, and complete the required documentation to conclude the file. False alarms divert valuable policing resources that can otherwise remain available for valid calls for police help.
