Crime and home security systems in Colorado Springs


Colorado Springs is safer than only 11% of U.S. cities, with over 17,700 crimes committed in the city annually. Most crime in Colorado Springs occurs near the central and western areas of town, so neighborhoods near the Downtown and the Academy corridor have higher crime rates.

The safest parts of Colorado Springs are in:

  • The south end of the city near Fountain
  • The north side near Powers (close to Peterson Air Force Base) or Briargate (near the Air Force Academy).

However, Colorado Springs as a whole still has higher rates of crime than the Colorado average.

Luckily, home security systems protect Colorado Springs residents from crime by scaring off intruders, alerting the authorities in an emergency and letting homeowners monitor their property while they’re away.

False alarm fines in Colorado Springs

The Colorado Springs Police Department deals with frequent false alarms, which waste time and distract from real emergencies. For this reason, CSPD is fairly stringent with its false alarm policy.

There’s an annual registration fee of $24 for home security systems, and the police department will not respond to calls from non-registered alarm systems.

While the first false alarm code is free, subsequent false alarms will cost you. Fines go up to $200 for a fourth offense, at which point the police stop responding to your alarm unless you complete paperwork and pay a reinstatement fee of $24.

How much is a home security system in Colorado Springs

For a monitored home security system in Colorado Springs, prices start at $30 per month and go all the way up to a $500 system with $40 monthly payments. Your home security costs depend on the intricacy of the equipment you choose and what types of monitoring you select.

Additional features add to your bill but might be worth it in the long run. Consider adding features like:

  • Smart home integration
  • Carbon monoxide detection
  • Hidden cameras
  • Motion detectors
  • Video monitoring

Most alarm companies in Colorado Springs offer free quotes, so take advantage of this to see what your home needs and what you’ll pay with each home security company. Compare prices and available services to find the best home security system in Colorado Springs for you.

Bear in mind that some alarm companies in Colorado Springs have you pay the licensing and registration fee to set up CSPD response, which can be about a $140 annual expense on top of your other payments.

Professional vs. DIY home security installation

Many home security companies require you to have their alarm systems professionally installed, and some offer this service free of charge. If you opt for a home security company that allows DIY installation, you’ll often find that this comes with fewer restrictive contracts and more freedom to customize your alarm system.
