Have a Home Alarm System? Permit Registration Began June 1st in Suffolk County.

Do I Have to Get a Permit?

Beginning June 1, 2016, Suffolk County requires any home or business with an alarm system to register and obtain a permit.  Permits for residential buildings are $50 and commercial are $100. Permits must be renewed every year.

Why do I Have to Get a Permit?

The law requiring permits was created to prevent false alarms and help the Suffolk County Police Department cover the costs associated with responding to false alarms.

What if I Don't Register?

Households with a permit will not be assess a fee for the first two (2) false alarms at their home, but will have a fee for the third.  Homes without a permit will be charged for the first false alarm and subsequent fees will be higher after that.
