Alarm Registration

Required Registration


In an effort to reduce the number of false alarms, and to provide better service to the citizens of Owasso, the City Council approved a new alarm ordinance and false alarm fee structure on July 5, 2017.  As a result, on October 1, 2017 alarm users will be required to register their alarm sites.

At that time, a link will be provided in this space for alarm registration. This site will not only allow alarm users to register their alarm system, but it will also allow them to keep the police department informed about any updates to your home or business that responders need to know to protect both people and property. Perhaps a special needs person is living in the home, or the alarm user has gone out of town and left the key with a neighbor, or the family dog is in the back yard and doesn't like strangers. In addition, alarm users will be able to access their alarm history.

  • Annual registration for residential alarm locations will be $30
  • Annual registration for business alarm locations will be $100
Although you may register as of October 1, 2017, there will be no enforcement of Failure to Register or False Alarm fees until December 1, 2017. 

After that date, if police respond to an intrusion or hold-up/panic alarm at an alarm site that has not been registered, the alarm user will be charged a failure to register fee. 

  • Failure to register fee for residential alarms will be $60
  • Failure to register fee for business alarms will be $200
Registered alarm sites will be allowed a number of free false alarm responses during the registration year depending on the type of location.  Unregistered alarm locations will be allowed no free false alarm responses.

  • Registered residential alarm sites will be allowed 2 free false alarms per registration year.
  • Registered business alarm sites will be allowed 2 free false alarms per registration year.
The False alarm response fee will depend upon the type of location, the type of alarm and the number of false alarms at that location.
