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 door.

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 data.






  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
