2.5-0: PURPOSE:
The County of Kane hereby declares false alarms to be a public nuisance prejudicial to the general health, safety, and welfare of the public. The Kane County Sheriff's Office responds to numerous false alarms each year. Many of these false alarms are from repeat offenders. Responding to such alarms exposes the officers and public to the dangers associated with emergency responses and wastes valuable resources of the Kane County Sheriff's Office. The purpose of this chapter is to ensure that citizens residing in unincorporated Kane County register their alarm systems and take necessary measures to prevent false alarms. (Ord. 17-226, 8-8-2017)
