Crime Tracker: Register Security Alarm Or Face Penalties From SPD

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The KHQ Crime Tracker Team is reminding people in Spokane to register their security alarms if they want police to respond. The Spokane Police Department says it requires people pay a $25 annual feel and businesses pay $35 to register their alarm.

The KHQ Crime Trackers checked into the matter when a concerned viewer called to report she’d received a letter claiming to be from Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub and asking her to call a phone number and register her alarm with a credit card number. The viewer was hesitant to do so and so she called KHQ.

KHQ Crime Tracker Kalae Chock called Spokane Police Officer Teresa Fuller who said the letter is legitimate. Officer Fuller says the fee was put into place a few years ago after officers were run ragged running from one false call to another. There are also fees for false alarms and SPD even says it might stop responding to addresses with repeated false alarms.

SPD has posted extensive information on registering security alarms and the repercussions of false alarm calls. You can read more here: http://spokanepolice.org/search/default.aspx?search=false%20alarm
