The police department responds to dozens of alarms each year. A vast majority of these are false alarms. The Borough charges for redundant responses of police resources to false alarms. Residential and business alarm responses are tracked by the police department. Each resident and business gets two (2) free "false alarm" responses annually. After this resident and business are charged a fee corresponding to the number of responses.
