Middletown, DE

The city of Middletown released the following statement regarding their false alarm reduction program:

“The Middletown Police Department is asking all residents and businesses to register your home and business security alarms with us. Did you know there are more than 1,000 “false” alarms each year in the Town of Middletown? This means our police officers are spending time responding to false security alarm calls, when they could be addressing other crime issues in Town.

Due to this issue, the Mayor and Council of Middletown recently passed an ordinance REQUIRING all Middletown security alarms to be registered. If you do not register your alarm, you will receive a fine from our police department if they have to respond to your home or business for a false alarm. If you DO register your alarm, you get several chances for a false alarm before being fined.

You may also register by downloading and printing a form at www.middletownpd.us or www.middletownde.org. Or, you may stop by Town Hall, 19 W. Green St., to pick up a form. This new policy goes into effect in March. For more information, call Kristen Krenzer at 378-2711.”

Below you will find the Middletown, DE alarm system registration form, please feel free to print this form out for your use.
