New program pushes residents, business owners to ‘CryWolf’

WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The City of Warner Robins and the Warner Robins Police Department are hoping to decrease the number of false alarms with a new program.

CryWolf is part of the city’s alarm ordinance and requires businesses and residential alarm owners to register their alarms.

The goal is to cutback on the number of false alarms police officers respond to, according to Officer Jeff McCommon, who also the coordinator for the department’s community initiatives.

“Residents and businesses will have one month to register their alarms, and then the alarms are monitored by CryWolf through our 911 system,” McCommon adds, “When we have false alarms then the homeowner or business owner will be notified.”
According to a news release, there are three ways you can register your alarm systems:
• Register by phone: 855-905-0606
• Registration forms are also available for pickup in person at the:
  • Warner Robins Police Department, located at 100 Watson Boulevard
  • Warner Robins City Hall, located at 700 Watson Boulevard

An online training course is also available for free on the CryWolf website.

Community members are encouraged to take this free course as it will waive your first false alarm fine.

Registration is free and will begin on Wednesday, June 15, 2016.

All alarm systems should be registered no later than July 18, 2016.
