5.28.100. Responsibility of alarm monitoring companies
Any person or company providing alarm monitoring service shall be responsible for obtaining and maintaining an up-to-date list of responsible parties to respond to the premises upon an alarm being received from a client's premises. Said list shall be equivalent to the lists required in Section 5.28.090 of this Chapter. It shall be the responsibility of the alarm monitoring person or company to notify the responsible party to respond. The alarm monitoring person or company shall then immediately notify the Layton Police Department and give the name of the responsible person responding, their estimated time of arrival at the scene of the alarm, and a description of the vehicle in which the party is responding. In the event there is no responsible party to respond to a business or residential premises alarm, the owner, occupant, or permittee of the business or residence may be assessed a Twenty-Five Dollar ($25.00) civil penalty, and the responding officer/fire fighter will do a visual outside perimeter check. Failure to pay this penalty will be cause for the City to decline to respond on future alarms or to require a disconnection of the alarm system.
