False Alarm Ordinance Now in Effect in Denison


DENISON, TX---- The city of Denison is enforcing a new city ordinance that requires all alarm systems within city limits to be registered with the Denison Police Department. The Denison City Council passed the ordinance last month and it went into effect yesterday.

Officers said registering is free and applications can be picked up at the police department or filled out online. They said the ordinance will most-likely reduce the number of false alarms they respond to which will save them time and money.

"After you register your alarm, you get four false alarms with no charge, but starting with the subsequent alarms after that it's $100 per false alarm," Lt. Mike Eppler of the Denison Police Department said.

Those who don't resister will get a warning and if they don't fill out an application for a permit after the warning, they could be charged up to $100 per false alarm plus a $100 fine for not having a permit.
