False Alarms
The Burien City Council adopted Ordinance No 399 on June 21, 2004, relating to police response to false alarms and changing to a verified response policy. In summary, the Ordinance states that police will respond to property alarms, intrusion alarms, and burglary alarms after the alarms have been verified by someone onsite. Police response to robbery alarms and panic alarms do not require a verified response.

  • False Alarm Response Fee - An alarm system monitoring company will be assessed a false alarm response fee of $150.00 for each false alarm.
  • Call Cancellation Fee - An alarm system monitoring company will be assessed a call cancellation fee of $100.00 if the company calls police dispatch to respond to an alarm and then they call back to cancel the response prior to police arrival at the alarmed premises.
  • Prohibited Call Fee - An alarm system monitoring company will be assessed a prohibited call fee of $100.00 for a call to police dispatch requesting police response to an alarm that has not been verified.

False alarm fees are billed by the City of Burien accounts receivable department. The invoice will be issued to the monitoring company or to the address on file for a private alarm.
