RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh's police chief has proposed a plan to crack down on false alarms.
Police in the capital city responded to more than 23,000 burglary alarm calls last year; 99 percent of the calls were false alarms.
Chief Jayne Perlov proposed a program that requires registration for alarm users and companies. The proposal calls for fines for anyone failing to register and for more than two false alarms in a 12-month period.
