CROWLEY, Texas — Technical difficulties with a third-party alarm-monitoring contractor have prompted this city to put its alarm permit ordinance, initially scheduled to take effect Oct. 1, on hold until Nov. 1.
The Crowley City Council approved using PMAM Copsource, which specializes in false alarm management solutions, for the administration and collection of permit registrations and false alarm fines. The firm is currently working out the kinks to make sure bills and permits are properly managed, Crowley Star reports.
The ordinance requires alarm owners to purchase a yearly permit for $50. The first three false alarms will be free of charge under the policy. Offenders will have to pay $50 for the fourth false alarm, $75 for the sixth and $100 for the eighth. If alarm owners have more than 10 false alarms, they must pay $100 and police will stop responding.
