Contractor to Help Dunwoody (Ga.) to Manage False Alarms

DUNWOODY, Ga. — As part of a new ordinance to reduce false alarms here, city council members Monday awarded a contract to Cry Wolf False Alarm Solutions to administer a new alarm management program.

The Dunwoody Police Department responded to 4,000 false alarms last year, which drained the department’s resources and manpower, the Dunwoody Neighbor reports. As part of the ordinance, home and business owners must register their alarm systems with Cry Wolf, which will alarm the company to detect false alarms.

The city will not charge for the first two false alarms; however, the third will cost residents and business owners $50. The fines max out at $500.
