The Bend City Council passed the first reading of a new city ordinance that will control false security alarms within the city.  On April 18th, Bend Police Chief Jeff Sale reported to the council that they spend about  $111,000 each year monitoring and responding to false security alarms.  He gave the council several proposals to mitigate the costs of the problem and at Wednesday night's meeting, the council approved the first reading for the proposal to hire a private third party to monitor the alarms and that would free up Bend Police officers.  Chief Sale also suggested a progressive fee for multiple call-outs for false alarms- beginning with $100 for the first and up to $300 for additional call outs.  Sale says by having a third party involved, revenues should increase and false alarm response costs should decrease.
