The common council finds:
A. The vast majority of burglary, robbery and medical alarms to which the Parker police department responds are false. Such false alarms result in an enormous waste of manpower. There is such a large percentage of false alarms as may lull the police officers into a sense of false security. If responding to an alarm, they will probably assume it is a false alarm and may be wounded or killed by a criminal at the location.
B. The danger to citizens, through emergency police responses created by false alarms, is unnecessary and hazardous.
C. The unnecessary waste of town funds/tax dollars through responses to false alarms must be eliminated.
D. False alarms of any type have created conditions causing danger and annoyance to the general public. (1988 Code § 4-2-2)
