At the Monday evening Gillette City Council Workshop Session, the council and staff had a discussion about a possible ordinance dealing with residential and business security systems. Gillette Police Chief Jim Hloucal told council members that the need for an ordinance stems from a recent increase in alarm calls. Police Lieutenant Chuck Deaton said in 2009, the police department responded to 42 calls where alarms had been activated. In 2012, that number jumped to 502 calls. In addition to the 502 residential calls in 2012, there were also 666 calls from business alarms, but in 2012 only 2 calls were true alarms. Deaton says spending that amount of time responding to false alarms compromises good resources. Read more: City Discussing Burglar Alarms
