Report: Alarm at G.H.W. Bush home broken for 13 months

🕐 1 min read

WASHINGTON (AP) — A government watchdog says a security alarm at the Texas home of former President George H.W. Bush was broken for at least 13 months before the Secret Service fixed it.

Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth says in a report released Thursday that Secret Service personnel protecting Bush noticed a failure in the alarm system at Bush’s Houston home in September 2013. A temporary alarm wasn’t installed until April 2014.

Roth says the Secret Service used roving patrols and cameras to monitor the property while the alarm was broken and no intrusions were detected during that time.

The Secret Service has also found that security equipment problems exist at the homes of other former presidents. Their names were removed from the public version of Roth’s report.
