It is the responsibility of each home owner and business to register their burglar or fire alarm with the City.  This can be done by calling Public Safety Corp. at (877) 314-1892 or on-line by visiting the following website:

Website for Citizens:  https://www.crywolfservices.com/omahane/

Website for Alarm Companies:  http://www.crywolf.us/

The alarm company will notify the City of Omaha Finance Department, Revenue Division by using the Multi-Department Registration of Intrusion Alarms Form for new and renewal clients and send required fees at the same time to the City.

In addition the website provides a statement of Intrusion Alarm Polices, the ordinance passed by the City Council July 16, 2002, and a List of the Most Frequently Asked Questions.

Public Safety Corp. will assign all registration numbers. The alarm company retains a copy of the number for use by its monitors to notify 911 of an alarm activation. If requested, the alarm companies are given an electronic form through email or disk of the Alarms Registration Record Layout Form.

Once the City of Omaha verifies payment has been received, an electronic file is sent daily to Douglas County for formatting into the 911 system.

If during the interim an alarm communication system company calls for 911 services due to alarm activation, a registration number is recorded and 911 responds to the call. The registration is verified at a later date by the City.

If the registration number proves to be false, fines will be enforced.
