[ARCHIVED] Residents & Businesses Reminded to Register Alarm Systems

City of Newark Logo

In an effort to reduce the number of false alarms the Newark Police Department responds to each year, City of Newark officials are reminding residents and businesses of registration requirements regarding alarm systems.

"The Newark Police Department responds to more than 1400 alarms annually, a majority of which are false," said police chief Paul Tiernan. "Reducing the number of false alarms will allow for officers to dedicate their time more effectively to respond to legitimate alarms and other calls for service."

City Code dictates responsibilities for both alarm users and the companies that install and monitor alarms, in order to ensure alarms are properly installed and maintained. Alarm users are subject to a penalty after the fourth false alarm occurs within a twelve-month period.

All alarm systems must be registered with the City within 30 days after the alarm system activation or alarm system takeover by another entity. Alarm registration forms can be found online. Questions regarding registration should be directed to Brian Cannon, Newark Police Department's Alarm System Coordinator, at (302)366-7100, extension 3104. Any person operating a non-registered alarm system could be subject to a $50.00 penalty.
