Register your security alarm system with County by July 1

Story Link :

The Gwinnett Police Department has partnered with CryWolf, from CentralSquare Technologies, to provide administrative and online services related to security alarm management. Every resident or business owner who has a residential or commercial security alarm system is required to register their security alarm system with the County.

The Gwinnett County Code of Ordinances requires security alarm systems to be registered with the Gwinnett Police Department. Residents need to complete their registration by July 1. Failure to register may result in an extra $25 fee for each false alarm.

As part of this transition, all alarm sites, including those previously registered, will be required to submit a new registration form. Registration can be completed online, by phone, or by downloading a paper registration form and sending it by mail.

False alarms cost taxpayers an estimated $1.8 billion annually nationwide. In 2020, Gwinnett Police responded to approximately 22,450 alarm calls, only 163 of which were true alarm or emergencies.

The False Alarm Reduction program only covers Gwinnett County Police precincts. Cities with their own police departments are not part of this program.
