Comments on fines and permits for police response as revenue raising gimmicks from article on December 25, 2021
            I’m not trying to start arguments, but of course it will, but in similar situations where government is forcing Alarm companies to pay fees to private entities, for profits to third parties, which I believe violates the whole intentions of Free America and individual choices is in my own business situation as examples is the Compliance Engine business and the ESA certification requirements of some States licensing requirements. 
            The Compliance Engine business is having to do the Fire Marshalls job, which alarm companies, sprinkler companies, and others are required to pay a fee to a third party to turn in reports to the Local Fire Marshalls office for inspections, deficiencies, etc. The Local tax base is already paying for the services of government employees to do this, and now the alarm industry has to pay again for it so the local government doesn’t have to do their jobs which, only requires them to keep up with a calendar.  Although, the cost is low and you can pass it on to the customer, the point is again about fines, fees, and costs that should not be.
            The ESA, which I was forced to receive a level one certification from, even though I have 30 years' experience in the alarm business, to receive a license in the State of SC, which is not the only State requiring this, and I believe violates SC’s own Statutes and provides a barrier to business entry:
            § 4. Direct aid to religious or other private educational institutions prohibited.  No money shall be paid from public funds nor shall the credit of the State or any of its political subdivisions be used for the direct benefit of any religious or other private educational institution. (1972 (57) 3193; 1973 (58) 44.)
            I went before the SC Board and was denied a license, because SC/NC did not have a reciprocal agreement. (By the way, I held a license in NC for 27 years at the time in good standing, and I have a 2 year Electronics Engineering degree from a Public College, which according to the State of SC is not good enough). The reason of the denial is not even a written reason for denial in their Statutes.  Yes I complained, griped, wrote the Gov, Attorney General, Inspector, and others to no avail, and I even jumped through the hoops and received my license, but still I’m griped about the fact of Government mandates that should not be.
            Well, this is my own experiences.

            Re:  Comment Newsletter 12/25/21... Court ordered rebates
            Many of us agree with your reply to Gary. And, we believe powerful Alarm Associations, supported by a few powerful alarm providers, after many decades has now jeopardized the “industry”. 
            The “Model Ordinance” is a quid-pro-quo… you give us police response to unknown alarm signals and we provide you with a source of revenue. They do not know when to stop digging that hole; it now has collapsed. We often forget, municipal police, including the Chief, report to the Mayor and City Council.  Alarm associations learned decades ago that most Chiefs resist the Model Ordinance, but the City Council see it as a major source of revenue, overlooking the Chiefs objections, thus a political tool.  Law enforcement cleverly inserted an “escape” from enforcing the onerous document. 
            The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) recently passed a resolution that endorsed the Model Alarm Ordinance and recommends the ordinance to its 31,000 members in 165 countries…before the “escape” provision is removed. SIAC is promoting this as major kudos, and law enforcement is also applauding it as major kudos, because it includes the escape, those powerful three words at the end of Section 10 …”prior response history”, i.e. justification to overlook much of the onerous language.   
            This is where I got the justification to use the term “slow or no police response”, and “unlawful fines/fees”, even in cities with the ordinance.
