Henderson County, NC, Working on Alarm Ordinance
The Henderson County, NC, Sheriff's Dept. says they responded to over 2,000 false business and home alarm calls last year. Capt. Frank Stout says the false calls cost them about $50,000 last year and the sheriff's office would like to county to create an ordinance to deal with the problem.
Stout says they are working with the county attorney to develop and ordinance that would fine repeat false alarm offenders.
