The Barrie Police Service's current practice is to invoice residential or commercial businesses for all false alarms. Effective April 1, 2018 the invoice will be mailed to the monitoring station that requested police be dispatched. There will be no increase to fees billed for 2018. The invoice will include detailed information including address, date, time; name of business and/or homeowner.
New Barrie Police Alarm Response Policy Effective April 1, 2018
Barrie Police Service will be implementing the cost to assist with the increased demands in responding to false alarms and with the intention to further reduce false alarms dispatched to police.
A fee of $180 will now be charged to the monitoring staiton for every dispatched alarm that is deemed to be false and a fee of $120 will be charged for every dispatched alarm that is cancelled prior to an Officers arrival.
For residential alarms only, the first false alarm and/or cancelled alarm will be forgiven. Any subsequent alarms will be billed to alarm monitoring stations.
