All security alarm systems within Warner Robins are required to register with the city. There is a fine for failure to register.

After more than a year delay, the implementation of a false alarm monitoring system mandated for Warner Robins businesses and residents is moving forward.

Police Chief Brett Evans delayed the implementation of the system in June 2016 due to public confusion and other issues.

Tuesday, Warner Robins police announced that implementation of the system had begun.

A city ordinance requires business and residential alarm owners to register their alarm systems and establishes an escalating fee schedule for false alarms.

“Those that incur a false alarm that are not registered will receive a $100 fine,” the release states. “If your alarm is registered, your first false alarm is waived.”

Those with residential alarms must register by the beginning of 2018. Commercial businesses should already be registered as of Oct. 1, the news release states.

Businesses and residents can register alarm systems by calling 855-905-0606.

The city is under contract with Maryland-based Public Safety Corp. to administer its CryWolf software for false alarm management.
