Business Alarm Permits
All businesses in Addison with an alarm system are required to register that stystem with the Addison Police Department
This summer the Addison City Council approved a change to the Town’s alarm permit and false alarm service charges. Currently Addison businesses are required to register their alarm systems each year and are allowed five false alarms before any fee is imposed. The amended ordinance increases annual registration fee for businesses from $25 to $50.
Businesses who have registered their alarm systems will be allowed three free false alarm calls before false alarm fees are assessed (this has been reduced from 5). The new fee structure will be implemented January 1, 2018.
New Registration Fee: $50
1-3 false alarms: Free
4-5 false alarms: $50
6-7 false alarms: $75
8+ false alarms: $100
Non-registered alarm users will be charged $100 for the first false alarm, but that fee will be waived if they register their system within 30 days of the violation.
In preparation of the alarm permit changes, we are asking all businesses to wait until after January 1, 2018 to renew your alarm permit. If you are currently a registered business, you will receive an invoice in January and additional information about the program. If you are not already registered, you will be able to register online after January 1, 2018. More details will be available by December 1.
