Are there false alarm charges?

Yes - Over  60% of false alarms are caused by customer error. User education is the best defense against false alarms. Currently, the City of Ventura Alarm Ordinance requires that alarm owners be billed $180.00 beginning with the fourth false alarm within a one year period. The cost for subsequent violations is $180 with each occurrence after the fourth within a twelve month period.
