Private Alarms

Alarm Ordinance
Kansas City’s alarm ordinance was implemented to reduce the number of police dispatches to false alarms. The ordinance encourages alarm users and alarm businesses to properly use alarm systems and to maintain their operational reliability. The ordinance requires that all alarm users obtain an alarm permit from the Police Department. Police response on an alarm activation will be denied until the alarm user has obtained the alarm permit.

The Kansas City Missouri Police Department processes alarm user permits through CryWolf Services.
All permits previously issued and in good standing were transferred to Cry Wolf.
