Dunwoody Alarm Registration Update
Although the effective date of the ordinance is July 1, 2013, we do
not anticipate going live and enforcing the ordinance until at least
September 1, 2013. We have been working with our vendor, Public Safety
Corporation, to design and implement our alarm management portal where
alarm users can register their alarm systems. We anticipate this will
be ready within the next several weeks. Once the portal is up, we want
to make sure we give alarm users enough time to register their alarm
We have posted information on our website about the
implementation of the alarm ordinance. In addition, we posted a video
about the implementation of the alarm ordinance.
Here is a link to both:
the alarm management portal is up, we will push the information out
about how to register to alarm users through our website, social media
channels, Interactive Defense, neighborhood watch coordinators and the
media. The City of Dunwoody communications team is working closely with
their counterparts in Sandy Springs and Johns Creek to coordinate a
media blitz since all three cities have adopted a very similar ordinance
which will likely be enacted at the same time. We also plan on having a
couple of public meetings to answer questions about the new ordinance
once the alarm management portal is up and running.
We will also have a registration form at the department that citizens can pick up and use to register if they are not online.
