FALSE ALARM BILLINGS
FALSE ALARM DEFINITION:
False alarm means the activation of an alarm resulting from human error, a system malfunction, improper installation of the alarm system, or design deficiencies causing an alarm business or reporting party to summon the police when no evidence of a criminal offense or attempted criminal offense is found.
EXCESSIVE FALSE ALARMS:The Police Department may declare an alarm system at a specific location to be a nuisance if such alarm system activates excessive false alarms. The City Council hereby finds and determines that three false alarms at a permitted location within a calendar year are excessive and thereby constitutes a public nuisance.
A higher false alarm penalty has been established for each additional false alarm during the same calendar year. The penalty has been established by resolution of the City Council. All penalties must be paid within thirty days from the date the invoice was rendered. Please view the City of Corona Ordinance for more details.
