PRESCOTT, Az.—A June 29 story from The Daily Courier reports Prescott police officers began enforcing a new alarm law on July 1 that charges alarm users for the third false alarm in a year.

The Prescott City Council on May 10 approved the new alarm ordinance, which allows alarm users two false alarm warnings within a given year. On the third false alarm, the owner will be assessed $100, and fees will increase by $100 for each false alarm afterward, according to the PPD.
