Alarm systems require registration
Alarms in homes, businesses and other buildings must be registered with Strathcona County Enforcement Services. For details, see Bylaw 31-2008, the Alarm Systems Bylaw.
- A one-time fee of $30 will apply to register an alarm. The registration is non-transferable when the property title is changed or the resident moves within Strathcona County. If a property owner has not registered and the RCMP respond to a false alarm, the owner may be fined $300.
- If there are two false alarms attended by the RCMP – the property owner will receive a written warning. Should there be a third false alarm attended by the RCMP – the property owner will be charged a response fee. ( $75.00 for a residence, $100.00 for a commercial building up to 500 square meters and $150.00 for a building over 500 square meters.) If the RCMP respond to three (3) false alarms within a six month period, the alarm permit will be revoked, and the property owner is subject to a $300.00 fine and in addition the property owner will be required to re-register the alarm at a fee of $30.00.
