alarmIt's not "just" a false alarm...

While home alarm systems are becoming increasingly commonplace, so are false alarms turned in to police departments. In fact, one estimate found that between 94-99% of all burglary alarm activations end up being false alarms.

However unintentional, false alarms waste taxpayer dollars and, more importantly, police officers' time, which can be of better use on patrol or answering other calls. Some communities even charge alarm owners for sending in repeated false calls. The good news is that many of these false alarms are avoidable. Find out how.

scam alertSCAM ALERT: Seniors being targeted

The Division of Police is currently investigating several instances where attempts are being made to defraud senior citizens. The scam consists of a caller and/or mailer advising that the homeowner has won a lottery and is requesting $2,000.00 be sent via Western Union to cover expenses. Please take note that this is a scam and the money is being sent out of the country making prosecution extremely difficult. The Division of Police is advising all residents to ignore these phone calls and mailings. Also, check out these other scam alert tips.
