San Jose copies Fremont

27 Dec

San Jose may follow Fremont’s policy of no longer responding to “unverified” burglar alarms. Read about it here.

    Verified response has never made any sense on any front except at a very cursory sound-bite level of discussion.

    Why do we so consistantly overlook the obvious opportunity to bill people for the time and material required to service a false alarm?

    None of the excuses offered as to why we can’t “ticket” someone for a false alarm make any sense. The very same tasks which we perform day-in and day-out to send someone a parking ticket could be used to bill someone for a false alarm.

    The issuance of parking tickets is a revenue-generating activity which fully subsidizes the costs of enforcement – if that is NOT true, how is it we can afford to have resources dedicated solely to the task of parking enforcement????

    Let’s do the same thing for “false alarm” enforcement.

    Oh, and please dont forget to forget this topic during the next round of Fremont City Council elections. We need to focus our attentions on much bigger issues Like our need for higher taxes!

    I agree — charge people for false alarms after a first warning. It would be z great money generator. Also, charge for alarm permits.
