False Alarm Reduction Ordinance

Print

The City of Palm Bay's Alarm Ordinance 2013_29_c  was amended and enacted by the City Council effective October 1, 2013.

The four most important changes you should know about the new alarm ordinance:

  • Any alarm system that will elicit a response from the Police Department must have a permit, even if it is not monitored.
  • The alarm user is responsible for obtaining a permit for their alarm system prior to using it.
  • The alarm user is responsible for providing their permit registration number to the alarm monitoring company to facilitate police response.
  • Alarm permits are renewed annually and now on the anniversary of the issue date. Only those alarm users who have had a false alarm the previous year will receive an invoice to renew and pay the $20 fee.
