False Alarms

Re "Alarm Plan Pits Police Against L.A. City Council," Jan. 16: We just moved from Newport Beach, where police respond to every alarm. Only the first and second false alarms are "free." On consecutive false alarms there is a fine, which becomes progressively larger. The residents are protected and the city gets richer.
