Burglar Alarms

If you own a house or business in the Town of Barnstable that is equipped with an active burglar alarm, monitored or non-monitored, you must register your alarm with the Barnstable Police Department.

Burglar alarm registration is valid for a set, two-year period. The current registration period is 2021/2022. If you have not yet registered or renewed your alarm, please do so immediately in order to avoid any unregistered alarm fines.

Please complete a 2021/2022 Alarm Registration form and submit with the $25.00 registration fee. Add a $10.00 late fee for all registrations submitted after January 31, 2021 or 30 days after installation, takeover, or activation of alarm system. Electronic registration and payment is now available! Use the link to complete the registration and payment electronically. 

2021/2022 Electronic Alarm Registration Form

If you choose not to pay electronically, the 2021/2022 Alarm Registration form is available to be downloaded below and is also available in the front lobby of the Barnstable Police Department 24/7. Your check or money order should be made payable to the Town of Barnstable.

Please mail or deliver your completed registration along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Barnstable Police Department
Alarm Administrator
1200 Phinney’s Lane
Hyannis, MA 02601

Hand-delivered and mailed registrations that do not include a self-addressed, stamped envelope will not receive a registration decal.

Due to Covid-19, we are limiting the amount of people that come up to the Records Department. If you are picking up or dropping off a registration form, please obtain a form from the front lobby and drop completed forms off in the blue Records mailbox which is also located in the front lobby.

Thank you for your continued assistance and diligence in reducing false alarms in our town!
