Why did I get an alarm citation?

§ 104-7. False alarms. A.For the purpose of defraying the cost to the township for responding to false alarms, the owners and/or users of an alarm system as defined by this chapter shall be subject to the following schedule of fines: (1)For the second false alarm per calendar year: fifty dollars ($50.) for each alarm. (2)For the third and subsequent false alarms per calendar year: one hundred dollars ($100.) for each alarm. B.Following the third false alarm, the Chief of Police shall have the authority to temporarily revoke the registration of any alarm system within the township. The person to whom the alarm system is registered shall be notified by both certified and regular mail of such action and be provided with the effective date of the revocation. No further response to an alarm system shall be provided until such time that the Chief of Police has received a certification from a licensed alarm supplier describing the basis for malfunction and also certification that the alarm system is free of defect. If no report or certification is received within forty-five (45) days from the effective date of revocation, the registration for the calendar year issued shall be considered void and the alarm system shall be disconnected. Where determined necessary in the opinion of the Chief of Police, an annual maintenance agreement shall be required as a condition for reinstatement of the registration. § 104-8. Violations and penalties. EN Any person violating any provisions of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof by a District Justice, be sentenced to pay a fine or penalty of not more than six hundred dollars ($600.), plus costs of prosecution, and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, to imprisonment in the county jail for a term not exceeding 30 days.
