In 1990, the Clayton City Council passed Ordinance No. 276 requiring all alarm users to register with the Police Department and pay a one-time registration fee. The fee is $32.00 for a residential alarm system and $64.00 for a commercial alarm system. An Alarm Registration Form can be found below and can be returned to the Police Department with the appropriate fee. A copy of this Ordinance may be obtained at the time of registration.
Alarms installed prior to the adoption date of the ordinance, are exempt from the registration fee.
In compliance with this Ordinance, the maximum number of allowable false alarms reported shall be no more than three in any thirty day period with a maximum allowable of no more than four in a twelve month period. For every false alarm in excess of three during any thirty-day period or more than four during a year, the user shall pay a false alarm fee of $50.00.
