False Alarm Ordinance

The Henderson County Sheriff's Dept. says they responded to over 2,000 false business and home alarm calls last year. They expect that number to increase this year.

Capt. Frank Stout says the false calls cost them about $50,000 last year. Stout says the number of false calls are increasing and the sheriff's office would like to county to create an ordinance to deal with the problem.

Stout says they are working with the county attorney to develop and ordinance that would fine repeat false alarm offenders. Stout says the ordinance is still being developed. He says all of the fine money would go to county schools.
