Burglar and Fire Alarms

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 three (3) free "false alarm" responses annually. The fourth (4th) is $25, fifth (5th) $50 and the sixth (6th) and each subsequent false alarm response is $100 per calendar year. Click here to view the ordinance.
