The UK police aren't responding like they used to. What's to be done?

With police responses to property crime getting slower, it may be time to consider the alternative – RG Security.

Where we stand currently

The UK police force is renowned worldwide for fairness and thoroughness, but staff shortages are slowing its responses to particular kinds of crime. News reports indicate that, in many parts of the country, it is taking up to a week for police to attend the scene of a burglary.

In fact, the page, which sets out what you can expect from the police, doesn't specify any timescale for their response – instead, it says that the police must ask a victim support organisation to contact you within two days of the time you report an incident.

And, when the police finally arrive at the site of a burglary, they may be unable to offer anything more positive than a crime reference number. That will help your insurance claim, but it may not seem very useful in the short term.

Moving forward

If you're running a business and you're concerned about potential break-ins, signing up for RG Security's alarm response service will help you sleep better.

The service offers optimum security, throughout the day and night. If an alarm is triggered, you'll know that trained RG Security staff will respond instantly, 24 hours a day.

We can also offer regular mobile patrols, ensuring your site is secure at the most high-risk times of the day.

If all of this reminds you of the way the UK police force used to behave, that's 100% intentional.
