Alarm Permitting

The City of Haltom City is changing the way it administers its residential and commercial alarm tracking and billing system. During the transition, no permits will be issued and no fees will be assessed. Any fees or outstanding debts prior to May 17, 2022, should be paid accordingly. Under the city ordinance the program allows permit holders up to three (3) free false alarms per 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 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 1,900 alarm calls in calendar year 2021. More than 1,400 of the alarms were 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.

The Haltom City Police Department will continue to provide 24-hour response to alarm calls during and after this transition.

Residents and businesses with questions about the alarm program are asked to call 817-222-7000. Citizens can email questions regarding this new program to .
