Owners of Wauwatosa properties equipped with security alarms will have until Feb. 13 to register with the Police Department and pay a $20 annual fee.
Since it is a new process, the deadline has been extended a bit, Sgt. Salvatore Alioto said today. Property owners who have failed to comply by Feb. 13 will be subject to a $50 late fee.
The Police Department has received numerous calls from alarm owners but it is not quite ready to start accepting registrations.
A registration form will be posted on the city's web site, Wauwatosa.net, and be available for pick up at the Police Department, 1700 N. 116th St., within the next few days, Alioto said.
The Common Council on Tuesday voted to require that all alarms within the city be registered. Property owners would pay a service fee because those properties are more likely to require police response than those without security systems.
