False Alarms Info
The Mount Laurel Police Department responded to 3,672 alarm activations in 2010. Of these, only 24 were actual emergencies requiring police response. Excessive false alarms drain police resources and hinder service to those truly in need.
Chapter 58 of the Township Code was updated by Council on December 19, 2011. Changes are summarized below:
False alarms shall be prevented through a program of training and periodic inspection and maintenance of the system.
TO PREVENT FALSE ALARMS WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING:
Ensure all family members or employees are properly trained in the operation of the alarm components.
Update your emergency contact information with your alarm monitoring service as changes occur.
In the event of multiple false alarms, arrange for an inspection and review of your system by your alarm company.
