Updated Alarm Ordinance
The City of Covina has recently adopted an updated Alarm ordinance to address false alarm response issues resulting from operator and alarm monitoring company errors. The goal of the ordinance is to reduce the number of false alarm activations requiring a response by the Covina Police Department, which will free up police resources and reduce the fines levied on alarm customers.
