Residents and business owners who rely on the Gwinnett County Police Department for protection must register their security alarm systems by July 1. This includes Peachtree Corners which contracts with Gwinnett County to provide police services to its citizens and businesses.

The county’s Code of Ordinance requires that all security alarm systems are to be registered. Failure to do so may result in an extra $25 fee for each false alarm.

The county has partnered with CryWolf, from CentralSquare Technologies to provide administrative and online services related to security alarm management. Visit crywolfservices.com/gwinnettcoga/ to register an alarm security system.

All alarm sites, including those previously registered, are required to submit a new registration form because of the transition to the new system. Registration can be completed online, by phone, or by downloading a paper registration form and sending it by mail.

For any questions, call 833-281-8743 or visit the Gwinnett Police False Alarm Reduction Program website.

According to the county, false alarms cost taxpayers an estimated $1.8 billion annually nationwide. In 2020, Gwinnett Police responded to approximately 22,450 alarm calls, only 163 of which were true alarm or emergencies.
