Private security patrol and alarm response service plays an important role in the overall security plan for Hancock Park. It is important that Hancock Park homeowners understand the security patrol companies operating in our neighborhood do not receive funding from the Hancock Park Homeowners Association.
In Hancock Park (Rossmore to Highland, Wilshire to Melrose), approximately 50% of the homeowners are security patrol subscribers. The number of security officers and patrol cars dedicated to our neighborhood are based on the number of paid subscribers. The more homes that subscribe, the more patrol coverage we receive in our neighborhood. The more patrol cars, the faster the response time and the more drive-by patrols.
The Hancock Park Homeowners Association would like to see every home in our neighborhood subscribe to patrol and alarm response service. To receive the benefit of security patrol/response services, homeowners must contract for and pay a separate monthly fee to their patrol service provider. It is not necessary to have an alarm system to be a patrol subscriber. Some residents contract for patrol service without having an alarm. If you do have an alarm system and want private patrol/ response, you must be a patrol service subscriber. Once you contract for patrol service, you simply notify your alarm monitoring company to notify your patrol service to respond. Having private patrol response can save homeowners from the City of L.A./LAPD false alarm fee, which begins at $162 for the first false alarm. There are no more free false alarms, under the current City of L.A. alarm laws.
Currently, there are (2) security companies that have dedicated patrol service within the Hancock Park neighborhood. For legal and insurance reasons, SSA Security Group and ADT can only provide their patrol and response services to their current subscribers.
SSA Security Group:
SSA Security Group, Inc. has a staff of active and former law enforcement officers who have had the training and skill to perform any and all tasks of security. Some are active or former S.W.A.T. team officers and officers of the elite Metropolitan Division of the LAPD, while others have extensive experience in narcotics/vice, detective, and patrol functions. The security patrol division is an armed patrol and response team consisting solely of off-duty and retired law enforcement officers. The patrol vehicle maintains its presence in the assigned area and NEVER LEAVES that area. SSA response time to calls for service is usually 3-5 minutes. They work with all alarm monitoring companies.
