False Alarm Reduction Program

The False Alarm Reduction Program was initiated to substantially reduce the number of false alarms that the Avondale Police Department responds to, thereby freeing up police resources to respond to emergencies.


The Avondale Police Department has partnered with CryWolf (a false alarm management company) to manage alarm registration and false alarms.


The Avondale Alarm Ordinance requires that all alarms be registered on CryWolf's website (please visit Avondale CryWolf's secure website to complete the online registration process)

False Alarms:

False alarms will be tracked and the third false alarm (and any subsequent false alarm) within a year will result in a fine. For more information regarding frequently asked questions please click here.
