VARDA-alarm is an acronym which stands for Voice-Activated Radio-Dispatched Alarm. It is a type of burglar alarm that, when activated or "tripped", broadcasts the type of the alarm and the transmitter location over the local police radio frequency using a pre-recorded audio message. It bypasses "911 Dispatch system" and sends a red alert to all police within the vicinity. See more
Nolan makes a huge tactical error when the gun thug is firing at him with the full-auto weapon. He has cover behind his truck and the thug is focused on firing into the passenger area. He should have pulled, and returned fire from one side of the truck or the other.
Likewise, the 459 call was handled improperly. Proper procedure is to summon additional units unless it has been verified someone inside was in immediate danger. The additional units serve as perimeter security while the primary unit checks the building. See more
