Do you need to register your home or business security alarm system?
The City of Belle Isle requires you to register your alarm with the city. This helps prevent delays when the police department responds to an alarm. City of Belle Isle False Alarm Program Commences November 1, 2019.
The City Council of the City of Belle Isle passed Ordinance 18-14 amending Chapter 15-75, which provides for the regulation concerning the installation, maintenance, and operation of security alarms and regulations designed to inhibit the occurrence and re-occurrence of false alarms.
The City of Belle Isle requires residents to obtain an alarm installation permit for the installation of security alarms. Residents who have not completed the permitting/application process are encouraged to do so immediately.
When used correctly, home security alarms provide a layer of security and peace of mind to homeowners. False alarms cost taxpayer’s money via dispatching services when an alarm is accidentally activated. Police responses to false alarms cause a significant misuse of resources and render police units out of and unavailable for a response to legitimate emergencies. Each home or business owner should do their part to prevent false alarms. Please review these suggestions to avoid false alarms from at your home or business:
Ensure you have obtained a City of Belle Isle Alarm Installation Permit
Request your alarm company to inspect your system annually.
Check the batteries on your system regularly, particularly after power outages.
Routinely check contacts on your doors and windows to ensure they are in good condition and properly adhered to the surface.
Ensure there is a sufficient pet path to avoid activation when your pet walks around your home.
Everyone with access to the system must know the proper code and how to arm and disarm the system.
If the alarm is set off accidentally, immediately contact the alarm company and be available until they have contacted you so you can alert them the activation is accidental.
