In response to the large number of business and residential false alarms every year and increasing demands for police service with finite resources, the Bainbridge Island City Council enacted False Alarm Ordinance 2003-05 in May, 2003. This ordinance established a fee schedule for false alarms and an alarm owner registration requirement. All property owners with burglary, robbery, or panic alarms installed at their premises are required to register their system. See the City of Bainbridge Island Fee Schedule for more information.
If you haven't registered your alarm system, please complete an Alarm Registration Form (PDF) and send it with a check for $50 payable to CoBI to BIPD, 625 Winslow Way E, Bainbridge Island, 98110. Please partner with us to reduce false alarms!
