Clearwater alarm ordinance updated
CLEARWATER – As it works to achieve its second-century goals, the city has updated its security alarm system ordinance to reflect the new digitization of the program.
Clearwater Police Chief Dan Slaughter appeared before the Clearwater City Council on March 12 at City Hall to seek approval for the amendments to the ordinance, which requires all owners of a security alarm system for which city police officers must respond in case of a break-in.
The city requires that all residents and business owners who have a security alarm system to register with the police department. For the past 20 years, the police department had handled all permits and registrations manually.
