Because of this, it’s critical that everyone in the city does their part to minimize the occurrence of false alarms.

What is Enhanced Call Verification?

Enhanced call verification, or ECV, is a code found in the alarm ordinances of various authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ), such as a city or county. If an AHJ has the ECV code in their alarm ordinance, that means enhanced call verification must take place before law enforcement will respond to an alarm signal dispatch. When a resident’s alarm signal is triggered, the city requires the alarm monitoring provider to verify the emergency by making two phone calls before they dispatch police to the location of the alarm.
