A couple of questions: is the number of false alarms for May a typical amount? An average of 2.5 per day seems like a large amount. Also, were the 39 summonses issued in conjunction with the false alarms?

Here are the alarm stats from Jan/Feb/April (sorry, don't have March's) for comparison. I don't believe that the summonses are related to the alarms--my apologies if it read that way--but will double-check. -January: 66 commercial and residential alarms of which 66 were false (http://northbranford.patch.com/articles/nbpd-by-the-numbers-and-chief-s-report) -February: 49 alarms, 49 false (http://northbranford.patch.com/articles/nbpd-by-the-numbers-february) -April: 85 commercial and residential alarms, 85 false (http://northbranford.patch.com/articles/canelli-briefs-police-commission-on-april-s-numbers)
