5.28.041. Notification by permit number; Response
In the event of an intrusion/burglary alarm the monitoring company shall provide the permit number when notifying the Police Department. On first alarms, if no permit number has been issued or application submitted, the Police Department will respond. On a second alarm, if no permit number is present, the Police Department may not respond. The alarm company will be notified of the Department's action and it will be their responsibility to ensure the alarm owner obtains a permit.
The Police Department will respond to any duress/holdup alarm and the Fire Department will respond to any fire alarm, regardless of the existence of a permit. However, this does not alleviate the alarm company's or the owner's or occupant's responsibility of obtaining the required permit. On second alarms where no permit exists on fire, holdup, or duress alarms, a fee will be assessed as set forth in the City's Consolidated Fee Schedule for the failure of a responsible party to respond to the alarm.
