With police responding to roughly 15 false alarm calls a day, according to Police Sgt. George Floridia, the town is implementing a new “false alarm abatement” ordinance on Sept. 15 that requires home and business security systems to be registered with the town.
Failing to register or having multiple false alarms a year will mean fines under the new ordinance. It applies to every home and business with an alarm installed, but does not include cars or boats. Town buildings and state buildings are also exempt.
