Alarm Registration Deadline Approaches

02/27/2009

Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor wants to remind citizens with a monitored electronic security alarm system, that they must register the system with the City of Fayetteville by March 1, 2009.

In November 2007, the Fayetteville City Council in an effort to reduce the number of false alarms passed an ordinance requiring anyone with a monitored security alarm at a business or residence to register their system with the city.  The purpose of the alarm ordinance is to encourage alarm users to properly use and maintain the operational effectiveness of their systems so as to reduce or eliminate false alarms.  The new ordinance, which will start being enforced effective March 1, 2009, also spells out penalties for those who do not register their system as well as penalties for police response to multiple false alarms. You are able to register your alarm by calling the False Alarm Reduction Program at (877) 575-0933 or online at:
