I just moved into Geneva and my home has a burglar alarm. Is there anything I need to do?

The City of Geneva has an ordinance requiring homeowners and business owners to complete an alarm permit application. This assures that when police officers respond to a burglar alarm at your home or business, the information reference for keyholders and homeowners is correct. While there is no fee for the application there are financial penalties for multiple false alarms. If no application is on file, the penalty is higher.
