A help­ful tip

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­sponded to 10 res­i­den­tial and busi­ness alarms this week from var­i­ous ar­eas in the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District. All the alarms were false alarms. These types of calls can slow re­sponse time for a more se­ri­ous in­ves­ti­ga­tion that re­quires im­me­di­ate po­lice re­sponse. Re­mem­ber to keep your alarm in op­er­a­tional con­di­tion and have it checked reg­u­larly to pre­vent any false re­ports.
