The City Council adopted Ordinance 8.48 to reduce the number of false alarms, increasing the availability of officers to respond to emergencies and other legitimate calls-for-service. The ordinance encourages accountability and responsibility of alarm users by charging alarm owners for more than one false alarm within 365 days.
Alarm owners are not currently required to purchase a permit for an alarm system, but have the option to register their alarm system at no charge.
The City has partnered with Alarm Program Systems to help implement, manage, and administer the ordinance. For any questions related to the False Alarm Management Program, please contact them at:
Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
