Security Alarm Response

Dark Watch Security is a 24/7 armed and fully insured security company and can answer and investigate any residential or commercial alarms that may arise. In today’s society Law Enforcement members are spread thin and sometimes unable to respond to your commercial or residential alarm for hours if at all. Depending on call volume or the number of alarms your property has had they may not show up. Why not make Dark Watch Security the initial contact with your monitored security company and have guaranteed presence at your home or business.
