On August 22, 2012 Davenport City Council adopted a revision to Chapter 5.06 Police and Fire Alarm Systems. All alarm users who have more than three police and/or fire alarms in any consecutive twelve-month period shall be deemed to have committed a municipal infraction. The fourth violation and any subsequent violations within the same twelve month period shall be deemed as violations.
While this ordinance has already been in place, the revision goes in effective October 1, 2012. At that time, the count for false alarms will be reset to zero and the count for police and/or fire alarms in any consecutive twelve month period will begin. The civil penalty for the first offense is $75.00 and $150.00 for each repeat offense.
If you have an alarm system or you recently moved to a location with an alarm system, it needs to be registered with the City. There is no fee for registration. Visit www.cityofdavenportiowa.com/alarm for a copy of the application.
If you have any additional questions regarding the program, please contact the Revenue Division at 563-326-7707.
