Alarm Permit Renewals Sent to Residents, Business Owners; Response required to maintain compliance with City ordinance

Franklin, TN – Residents and business owners in Franklin are receiving renewal notices, like this one, in the mail. Franklin ordinance requires that alarm systems used in Franklin homes or businesses be registered with police. Registration and renewal gives the Department current contact and other pertinent information officers need when responding to an activation.

Permits expire December 31 of every year and require renewal. The new year also gives those who may have multiple false alarms a fresh start. While there is no fine for your first four false alarms, a fine of $25 is assessed for false alarms five through seven. An eighth false alarm, in a calendar year, will result in revocation of the alarm permit. The cost for a new alarm permit is $10. Existing permits are renewed at an annual cost of $5.00. Permits can be purchased and renewed at the Records Section of Police Headquarters, 900 Columbia Avenue.
