Registering Alarms in Sandy Springs
As of October 1, 2013, all monitored alarm systems in Sandy Springs are required to be registered with the City. The registration requirement is part of a City ordinance targeting a reduction in the number of false alarms in the City.
To register your alarm system today, you can:
- Call 1-855-725-7101
- Download and print an alarm registration application form and fax to 877-302-9820
- Register online at crywolf.us/sandyspringsga.
Once an alarm is registered, it is automatically renewed. If the property owner moves, or changes alarm providers, they will need to update their information.
More than 95 percent of all false alarms are caused by user error. Make sure you and those who will activate the alarm are properly educated on the system’s operation from your alarm company. If you do set your alarm off accidentally, disarm your system as soon as possible and give your alarm monitoring station the necessary password and ID number to have the 9-1-1 call canceled.
Filing an Appeal
Alarm users may appeal an assessment of a false alarm fine or permit suspension to the Alarm Administrator by submitting in writing the reasons for the appeal within ten (10) days of the date of the notice sent. You can email that appeal to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: PO Box 102117, Atlanta, GA 30368-2117. Be sure to include your name, email address, alarm location, date of the false alarm, your permit number, reasons for the appeal, and any supporting evidence.
