Is there a charge for the police responding to false alarms?
In many areas the Police and Fire Departments do charge fines to alarm users for responding to false alarms. Some authorities allow you one or two false alarms for free, after that you will be fined if the Police or Fire authorities respond and determine that it was not an actual alarm. The more alarm activations you have in a given period the more expensive each subsequent fine becomes. Typically, if you remain false alarm free for three-hundred and sixty-five days the process and fine schedule resets. The rules, regulations and fines vary by municipality / county.
