Fair enough, the alarm was set off and ignored by the police. That sounds fishy in and of itself. It does say this in the article...
Police said there was no sign of forced entry to the building, which is shared by a number of other companies. Scotland Yard said it had not ruled out
It's quite possible that even the policemen working that night were in on this professional pay role. Cops everywhere today are as corrupt as they
have ever been. I find it suspicious that they just "ignored" an alarm at such a high profile bank, especially when they have access to just turn on
those CCTV cameras and view in real time, what we have viewed here.
First of all, this is not a high-profile bank, this is a safe deposit company renting out expensive self-storage. That's all it is, a private company
with a vault renting out secure boxes. It's NOT A BANK and presumably would not have the same level of police response as a bank would.
The police have no idea of the value of the contents of those boxes, any more than they have an idea of the value of contents at any other
The communal area of this building seems to be open, without access control systems. But, it's likely that each company has its own access control.
So, presumably, anyone can walk in off the street and have access to the lifts and stairs. This seems to be what the thieves did. They walked into the
open area of the building, went up to the 2nd floor and stopped the lift, and then used the lift shaft to gain access to the basement - presumably
because there is a secure system in the lift to prevent them from getting access to that basement, a secure area.
I think it's unlikely here would be any alarm activation in the communal areas of this building, so the activation would have had to be from them
gaining access through the secure shutter in the basement, to get to the vault.
Without knowing the size of that floor or the security system they used, it might be that there was only one sensor, on that shutter door. If so,
that's complacent beyond belief. There should have been a vibration detector on that door, a contact point, then a motion sensor in the room, and the
same again around the vault.
If this was a single activation received by the Monitoring and passed to the police, it could be that assumptions were made. A roller shutter in a
basement causes an activation, without any other signals from the building... that would give most people the impression of a false alarm. Unless the
police or monitoring know the building is shared, and know that the system is limited to just one circuit in the basement, they might have simply
assumed that if this were a break-in other areas would have activated before the basement.
I think this is going to result in embarrassment for the police. The more we find out about this the more likely it is that someone just made a very
bad decision and didn't prioritize this the way they should have. It seems to me they just assumed that a single activation in a basement was a false
alarm, without knowing enough about the building to make that assertion.
