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 2023/2024. 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 2023/2024 Alarm Registration form and submit with the $25.00 registration fee. Add a $10.00 late fee for all registrations submitted after January 31, 2023 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.
