Local Requirements for Alarm Registration
 

The police departments across the province have created False Alarm Reduction Initiatives. These programs differ from municipality to municipality and may include by-laws that require users to register their alarm signals, verify alarm signals before contacting the police, or fees for police responses that result from false alarms.
