Change to Alarm Permitting/Billing

alarm permittingThe City of Haltom City has changed the way it administers its residential and commercial alarm tracking and billing system. The program, formerly run in-house by the Haltom City Police Department, is now administered by PMAM Corporation, a company that specializes in managing municipal alarm tracking and billing systems.

You may access the alarm permit account management website here.

Under the new ordinance the program allows permit holders up to five (5) free false alarms a calendar year before charging a penalty. Property owners with alarms are advised and encouraged to ensure that their family members and/or employees are properly trained in how to operate alarm systems. Please make sure your alarm equipment is working properly and call your alarm company if repairs are needed.

The intent of having the alarm program managed professionally is to reduce the significant number of false alarms within the City limits while also making owners of alarms more accountable for the operation of their units. The Haltom City Police Department responded to more than 1,162 alarm calls in calendar year 2012. The Police Department staff estimates about 98 percent of the alarms are false.

These numerous non-critical calls for service prevent, hinder or delay the amount of time that dispatchers and police officers can spend responding to mission critical duties and reduce the amount of staff who can work proactively to prevent crime.

Outsourcing their alarm programs to professional vendors is becoming common among many municipalities who have the same experiences as Haltom City regarding high rates of false alarms.

The Haltom City Police Department will continue to provide 24-hour response to alarm calls.

Residents and businesses with questions about the alarm program are asked to call 1-877-231-7265. Citizens can email questions regarding this new program to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Coyotes Among Us

Coyotes inhabit nearly every contiguous U.S. state and Alaska. The territorial range for an average pack of six can be as much as 12 miles in diameter from the den, and travel for the pack usually occurs along established trails and natural waterways. Coyotes hunt primarily at night, but are often seen during the day.coyote

Coyotes generally breed from January through March, producing litters approximately 2 months later. Citizens will often see more coyotes during the months of March to May, as they are hunting more to ready themselves for the upcoming litters.

Citizens who are concerned about coyotes in our area that have a desire to have them removed need to understand this is not feasible, nor is it recommended. Trapping and similar nuisance control actions cannot eliminate urban coyote problems, although this can be part of the solution in some situations.

If you live in an area where coyotes have been seen or are known to be present, the following precautions should be taken:

  • Do not feed Coyotes! Keep pet food and water inside. Keep garbage securely stored.
  • Keep Compost piles securely covered; never using bones or fat, which can draw coyotes.
  • Keep pets inside or confined securely in your yard.
  • Walk pets on a leash and accompany them outside at night.
  • Do not feed wildlife on the ground. Keep birdfeeders elevated.
  • Keep fruit trees fenced and fruit picked up.
  • DO NOT FEED FERAL CATS. This will encourage coyotes to prey on cats, as well as feed on cat food left out for them.
  • Use noise making devices, such as air horns, whistles, etc., when coyotes are seen.

Crime Free Multi-Housing Pgm.

The Haltom City Police Department would like to congratulate the following apartment communities for being the most recent to complete Phase One of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program:

Haltom Oaks, Club at Springlake, Lakeview, Cornerstone, The Woods of Haltom, Fossil RidgeCrimeFreeMultiHousingSm5

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program consists of three phases that are completed under the supervision of local law enforcement. The cornerstone of the Crime Free Program is the partnership between law enforcement and the community working to prevent crime. Property owners and managers make the commitment to apply the Crime Free Program in an effort to keep illegal activity off their rental property. This combination of resources has proven to have positive, long-term effects in fighting crime. Property managers can become individually certified after completion of the training phase, while the physical property itself can only be certified upon completion of all three phases.

HCPD - STEP Program

The Haltom City Police Department is participating in the Comprehensive Selected Traffic Enforcement Program to enforce speed, seat belt and child safety seat violations.

Along with a number of other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, the Haltom City Police Department will be particularly vigilant in identifying those drivers who fail to comply with posted speed limits, proper seat belt use and child safety seat regulations throughout Haltom City.

The purpose of this campaign is to educate the public and gain voluntary compliance in these very important aspects of public safety. The Haltom City Police Department will continue to participate in this campaign through September 30th, 2017.

HC Apartment Manager Wins Award

Loren Tribble, Apartment Manager at North Hills Crest in Haltom City, has been recognized as the International Crime Free Association’s Apartment Manager of the Year. Ms Tribble helped to make the program tremendously successful at her apartment community by her dedication to detail and willingness to go above and beyond all expectations.appt award

Loren has been successful in removing criminals who were abusing the system for free rent and has managed to evict over thirty-five criminals from her property since starting the program just last October. Due to her awareness and attention to detail, she even assisted police in locating, identifying and arresting a fugitive, based solely on the precise details she was able to provide.

Crime Free Officer Brandi Perkins says Loren is a strong leader who has reached out to the community and solicited other apartments to join the Crime Free Program. Loren has helped reluctant managers to see the value of forming a partnership with the Department, convincing them that joining the program is the best way to do that.

The ICFA presented Tribble with a plaque at the annual conference in Wichita Falls in July. The Haltom City Police Department will recognize Ms Tribble at a city council meeting in August.
