The City of Bend is moving toward a public / private partnership to solve an expensive problem for the police department.  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.   At a recent meeting, one citizen spoke out and agreed with an idea to have a private sector business monitor the alarms.  "I think there's a great opportunity in the private sector to assume the responsibility in the private sector to assume the burden and the obligation that the police department currently assumes, at the expense of the police department of having to respond to all these private alarms at the rate of $100,000 a year.”  Last night, the council moved forward with the proposal to hire a private third party to monitor the alarms.  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.
