As an Alarm / Security System user, an annual permit is required.
All alarm users are required to submit an alarm user information form. This addresses alarms connected directly to Oak Lawn's Communication Center, a private monitoring firm, a proprietary central station or any other structure where an installed alarm system is capable of sounding an alarm throughout the building via the activation of a single device.
TERM: April 1 through March 31
FEE: $25 / AFTER NOV 1 RATE $12.50
CONTACT: Alarm Annual Registration Permit Coordinator at (708) 499-7837.
IMPORTANT: Operation of an unlicensed alarm system may subject you to penalties including fines of up to $500.
False alarms place the lives and property of community members in jeopardy. While police and firefighters are responding to alarms that turn out to be false, they are less likely available to respond to alarms that are valid. In addition, the occupants are less likely to believe in their system with repeated false activations.
The Village of Oak Lawn encourages community members to research the proper usage of their alarm systems through manuals or by consulting their alarm dealers.
