Permits & Forms
City Code, Division 2, Section 34-55, makes it unlawful for any person to use or maintain an alarm system which would trigger a police response, without first obtaining an alarm permit from the Police Department. There is no fee for the alarm permit, and it will routinely be issued on receipt of a completed application form. However, using or maintaining an alarm system without a permit is punishable by a $100.00 fine.
The City Code, Section 34-57,further provides that, after the first three false alarms in a calendar year, penalties are assessed at the rate of $45.00 per alarm from the 4th to 10th false alarm; and $75.00 per alarm from the 11th to 20th false alarm; and $150 for the 21st and all successive alarms in a calendar year.
The purpose of this regulation is to (1) attempt to reduce or eliminate the demand on public resources to respond to false alarms, and (2) to ensure that the Police Department has complete information to respond in a safe and effective way and contact appropriate people after hours or when homeowners are on vacation.

Motor Vehicle Accident Release Form: In the past the Keene Police Department has been unable to honor third party requests for accident reports due to the restrictions of the Drive Privacy Act.
In light of past requests we have looked into this matter and determined that it is possible for the Keene Police Department to release a person’s accident report, and photographs of such, to a person or firm representing that individual.
This can be accomplished by completing and submitting to us a Motor Vehicle Accident Release Form. This form must be signed and notarized by the person authorizing the release of their accident report and / or associated photographs. The person listed on the form as representing the individual will need to bring the form to the Keene Police Department and present identification along with this form when picking up the records.
The Emergency Contacts Form is used for local businesses to register with the Keene Police Department those employees the business wishes to be contacted in an emergency during non-business hours.
