The City of Georgetown and the Georgetown Police Department have established a False Alarm Reduction Unit and a City Ordinance (6.60) that requires all members of the Georgetown community that have alarms, either residential or commercial, to register the alarm with the Police Department. The establishment of the Unit and the ordinance is in an effort to begin to reduce the number of false alarm calls for service that the Police Department responds to on an annual basis.
The ordinance requires homeowner and business owners to complete an application that will provide contact information, alarm company information and any special instructions or considerations. The application fee is $25 for both residential and commercial, annually. Additionally, alarm companies will be required to register with the City as well.
