Did you know in Louisiana that each individual is legally required to be licensed to SELL or INSTALL a security system? Many less reputable companies will hire summer workers to knock on doors to offer to sell or upgrade your system. Louisiana has put safeguards in place that each individual, not a company, be licensed to ensure they have the proper background checks and training to ensure your system is properly installed to protect you and your home.
The best defense against an unscrupulous salesperson is knowledge. Be informed and be aware. Should you have any questions or would like to file a complaint against a security alarm salesperson and/or company please call the Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office at (225) 925-4911 or visit the website at: www.lasfm.org. They also have additional information here.
You may also call the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General, Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-351-4889 or (225) 326-6465 or visit the website www.ag.state.la.us. You can also contact your local Better Business Bureau office or visit their website at: www.bbb.org
