Peel Region Police Implement False Alarm Fees
Peel Region Police are the latest to come on board with a False Alarm Reduction and Prevention Strategy. AKA false alarm penalty. First strike, $160 fine billed to the central monitoring station responsible for dispatching the alarm, and no more police response for 1 year. Subsequent violations are $160 each. Does your alarm monitoring company have ‘best practices’ in place for avoiding false alarms?
