The Quakertown Police Department is required to respond to all automated alarm system calls. These calls can be actual calls or false alarms. The Borough bills for false alarms during the course of the calendar year. The first false alarm is free. The second false alarm is billed at $25.00, the third is $50.00, and the fourth is $100.00 and all subsequent false alarms are billed at $200.00 per event.
It is imperative that alarm systems be maintained properly and multiple false alarms could be indicative of a problem that should be investigated.
