An ordinance that would require a permit for alarm systems and fine repeated security false alarm offenders may have been tabled by
Rockwood City Council, but officials are keen to see it back on the agenda in the future.
Having an alarm go off and not knowing who to contact when they arrive is one reason Rockwood Police Chief Danny Wright gave for having permits.
“Sometimes we have alarms where we don’t have anyone listed as a responsible person to call,” Wright said.
“That is the whole point, to make sure we have the documentation and the contacts for people to help us.”
