Law Enforcement personnel respond to thousands of false alarm calls yearly. These unnecessary responses result in an enormous burden in manpower and expense; which in turn reduces the time available to respond to real emergencies. There is no fee to register, however, alarms must be registered on an annual basis. If an alarm occurs on a system that is not registered the alarm service user will be subject to a $150 non-registration fee for being in violation of the City Ordinance.
