Recently the alarm at our house went off while we were not home. A door that that was closed was not properly locked and it blew open in some heavy winds. My wife arrived at our house while police were on scene investiagting the alarm. Fortunately there was no burgalur or anything wrong. However, the officer informed my wife that we did not have a permit or did not register our alarm with the city and we needed to do so or it could result in a fine the next time they have to respond. A couple of questions regarding this.
Who should have told us about having to register our alarm? Our builder did not, and our security system did not. While I'm sure it is on the city website, you can understand that I don't have all day to surf the city's website to ensure I am in compliance with all codes.
Is this something that my builder or security company should have done when we moved in?
Where can I find a form or who should I contact to register my alarm system with the city, if it is not the responsibility of my builder or security company?
BTW, thanks to the police for what was apparently a very quick repsonse time. It makes my wife and I feel better knowing that you guys are prompt and take these matters seriously.

Your alarm company should have informed you of the requirement. Additionally, if you received a newcomers packet when you registered for water, we have a flier in the packet about alarms.
Contact Police Records at 972.335.5502 or come to the police department during regular business hours to complete the form, or download it from http://www.friscotexas.gov/police/pdf/AlarmPermitApplication.pdf
A great deal of information about how to obtain information from the police department is located at
Good luck and welcome to town. I'm glad the officers were able to help.
