L.A. Council Tables Motion to Take Control of Burglar Alarm Policy
LOS ANGELES – A member of the Los Angeles City Council withdrew her motion Nov. 4 for the council to take over jurisdiction of the city’s new burglar alarm dispatch policy dependent on the city’s police commission delaying its implementation through the start of 2004.
The city’s long-debated alarm policy – in which officers would stop responding to unverified alarms at locations with more than two false alarm calls in the previous year – was to have gone into effect Nov. 1, but was delayed by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in response to Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski’s motion to assert city council jurisdiction over the policy from the city’s police commission.
At the council’s meeting Nov. 4, Miscikowski withdrew her motion after a representative from the commission said it would consider a 60-day delay.
