According to information provided by the Kansas City (Missouri) Police Department to the website KansasCity.com, permit fees and false alarm fines were increased this month.

Renewal fees are rising from $35 to $40. Residential alarm system users will now be charged on their third false alarm in the year, with the fine starting at $40 and increasing to $120 based on successive alarms.
