Burglar/Panic Alarm

Police officers responding to an alarm at your business or residence can save you from being the victim of a theft or an assault. Over 90% of emergency alarms to which law enforcement officers respond to are unfortunately false alarms.

In an effort to make better use of existing law enforcement resources and provide a more effective response to alarm calls, the Village of Orland Park revised its existing alarm systems ordinance.

A false alarm is defined as any alarm activation that elicits a response by police, is not canceled prior to the arrival of police personnel and for which there is no evidence of criminal activity to justify the response. A false alarm may be caused by factors such as human error or equipment malfunction.

The alarm ordinance still requires that all alarm systems are registered with the village. New alarm registration fees are currently $25.00.

The ordinance also requires that you fill out a new alarm registration form which can be found on the village web site for all homes or businesses and send this to the police department. This form provides the police department with more information to assist when responding to your home or business.

There is no fee for this.

The ordinance also requires that the information on home alarms be updated every five years 2015, 2020, 2025 etc., and all business alarms every other year beginning 2013, 2015, 2017 etc. There is no charge for this renewal.

We hope these enhancements will increase our efficiency and to allow us to better serve and protect our residents, businesses and visitors to Orland Park.
