SAPD Advises Caution in Light of Non-Compliant Security Sales People
The San Angelo Police Department is advising the citizens of San Angelo of two out of town security alarm sales groups who are in town selling door-to-door. Both groups have not complied with the Texas Department of Public Safety Security requirements. Sky Line and ProLink representatives have failed to comply with our requests to verify their credentials. We cannot verify their sales/installation employee’s criminal history or their compliance with DPS requirements.
The Texas Department of Public Safety Security requires out of town companies to check in with the Texas municipality they plan to sell in. They are required to have on their person (at all times) their DPS Security License (See photo example). This license shows that they have been approved by the DPS to sell or install alarm systems in your home.
If the sales person has their DPS Security License, they have fingerprints on file with TX DPS Security Bureau along with a background check on that person.
The SAPD makes every attempt to work with the alarm companies in order to verify each sales person’s credentials. The SAPD Records Division again checks the sales person’s criminal history and state issued security license.
ALWAYS ASK TO SEE THE SALES PERSONS TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY SECURITY LICENSE.
If you in any way doubt the credibility of the alarm sales person’s license, feel threatened or intimidated by his or her actions, DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT THE SAN ANGELO POLICE DEPARTMENT at 325-657-4498 during normal business hours. After 5:00 p.m., contact the non-emergency line to dispatch at 657-4315.
If you want to find out if a company has checked in with SAPD, you can call the alarm coordinator at 325-657-4304 Monday through Friday 8-5.
