The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has been making initial enquiries into what calls were received relating to the Hatton Garden burglary last weekend.
At this stage we have established that on Friday, 3 April at 00:21hrs a call was received at the MPS Central Communications Command (MetCC) from Southern Monitoring Alarm Company. The call stated that a confirmed intruder alarm had been activated at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd.
The call was recorded and transferred to the police’s CAD (computer aided despatch) system. A grade was applied to the call that meant that no police response was deemed to be required. We are now investigating why this grade was applied to the call. This investigation is being carried out locally.
It is too early to say if the handling of the call would have had an impact on the outcome of the incident.
