Does the Murrysville Police Department charge a service fee for responding to false alarms?

Yes. Businesses and residential property owners are permitted two courtesy false alarm activation responses per calendar quarter. Third and subsequent responses to false alarms during that period are referred to as nuisance alarms. The business or property owner will be charged a $35 fee for a response to a nuisance alarm. The Murrysville Police Department values the importance of alarm systems, and as such, we are committed to responding to activations to ensure your safety and protect your property. However, repeated responses to false activations at the same address take officers off patrol where they otherwise may have been needed. If your alarm activation is cancelled prior to police arrival, you will not be billed. An officer will still respond just to ensure that the cancellation was not the result of duress or coercion caused by an intruder.
