Each year, the Township of Hampton Police Department responds to hundreds of calls that turn out to be false alarms. These are not only an expensive inconvenience to the Hampton Township Police Department, but they also endanger anyone actual suffering from a real emergency. To curtail the number of false alarms, the Township of Hampton has enacted an ordinance to deal with the large number of false alarms the police must respond to.
Hampton Township bills a fine of $50 after 3 false alarms in 1 calendar year. If you believe that you did not have a chargeable false alarm you may notify the Police Department in writing to confirm the number of false alarm responses from your home or business and the dates on which they occurred. You will be notified of this information in writing to confirm our records are correct.
