False alarms are a fact of life if you have a home or business alarm.

Be warned Wayland home and business owners - you will face fines for repeated false alarms. 

Wayland Police are reminding residents of the town's alarm bylaw that can impose fines on home or business owners for "excessive" false alarms in a calendar year. A fourth false alarm will cost $25, while a fifth will cost $50. Subsequent false alarms will cost $100 each incident. 

This year, Wayland Police plan to track the number of false alarms by address. After the third alarm at any address, police will send warning notices. 

In 2002, Wayland Police began enforcing the town's false alarm bylaw. Since then, the number of false alarms has dropped by 60 percent. 

"Many of these alarms are repeat malfunctions at businesses or private residences. False alarms strain the resources of the department and create unnecessary risk to officers and the public as a response is initiated," Wayland Police Chief Robert Irving said in a statement.
