The City of Rockford’s False Alarm Ordinance was instituted to assist in providing a safer environment for everyone and requires owners (residential and business) of any monitored security systems to register their system with the City for an initial one-time cost. To register your system, complete the Alarm User Permit Application and return it with the fee to the City of Rockford Payment Center. The application will be processed and a non-transferable permit will be mailed to you. The fine for failure to obtain a permit is $300 for each alarm activation at a non-registered premise.
