False Alarms Decrease - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock


False Alarms Decrease

Three false burglary alarms and you pay. That's the city ordinance that was passed in 2001 and since that time, the number of false alarms have decreased by one third.

In 2000 Lubbock police answered nearly 25,000 false alarms. That number decreased to just over 16,000 in 2003.

Under the ordinance home and business owners are allowed to call police to three false burglary alarms. After the third false alarm, you must apply for a $50 permit and you also face additional fines.
