If your security alarm generates more than four false alarms within a twelve month period, you will be charged $500 for each alarm thereafter.
If your dwelling or business in the township has an alarm system, please ensure your alarm company always has up-to-date keyholder and property information. Your system will work better, and policing costs will be reduced if you maintain your contact information.
