Sandy Springs Police and alarm companies are working to get on the same page with the city's new alarm ordinance coming in June.

Sandy Springs says it is trying to cut down on false alarms.

The city says currently 98 percent of alarm calls are false.

The new ordinance states before an officer respond there must be a verifiable intrusion.

The alarm companies disagree with the decision to move forward with this ordinance.

Companies say they fear this will affect public safety if officers do not respond or are delayed.
