Springfield, MO, Fines for Four or More False Alarms
The Springfield, MO, Police Department is now billing residents whose alarm systems generate four or more false alarms.
A third-party ordinance administrator, PMAM, will take on the responsibility of sending bills to people who are being fined.
"When you have a fourth false alarm in a year, that's when our civil penalties start," says Lieutenant Ben King with the Springfield Police Department.
