Newtown updates town law on alarm system registration

Newtown officials have updated town ordinances about alarm systems in an effort to reduce the number of false alarms.   Home and commercial users are encouraged to keep their contact information up to date with police. 

 

Starting July 1st, all alarm systems in Newtown must be registered and renewed annually.  The Newtown Police Department, with the help of the Town IT Department, has created an online registration/renewal application.  Fees can also now be paid online. 

 

Having an unregistered alarm system could result in a $99 fine. 

 

A 2nd false alarm will cost $25.  The fee doubles for the 3rd and 4th false alarm.  It will cost $100 for a 5th, 6th, or 7th false alarm, doubling for the 8th and 9th.  If a home or business alarm system falsely goes off 10 times or more, it's a $250 fee.
