10/13 Christie Turner:
If the permit fee is set by statute at the State level (which, if
true, is certainly annoying), the City could raise
the false alarm fines to more adequately cover the
per-incident cost of false alarm responses. Surely
that fine isn't set by the state.
I don't think any taxpayer will object to
picking up the tab for the non-false alarms. That
way people who don't set off their own alarms
aren't penalized annually.

17,000 Real Business & Residential Burglaries
(Year to Date in Dallas)
Contrary to Mr. Larry Davis' comments
before Council last week, DALLAS has a REAL burglary problem with
17,000 REAL business and residential burglaries
year to date.
Some of the reported FALSE ALARMS were REAL burglaries that the Dallas
Police Department DID NOT DETECT when they took a quick look around (and
then placed a FALSE ALARM tag on the residence or business).
Many residents returned home to find
their home burglarized and a False Tag on the
I agree alarm owners need continued training,
but Dallas Police Department Officers need a LOT OF TRAINING when
they check property for a burglar.
When the burglar is within a
residence ---THAT IS A FELONY IN PROGRESS---
nothing to play around with ---Not for the neighbor lady
to check out.
CONTRARY TO COUNCIL PRESENTATION--- Salt Lake City burglary WENT UP
6.5 % after VR -- per FBI Unified Crime Reporting standard
WHO IS BEING MISLED?????
