New Castle County: Alarm Permit Registration

Through the implementation of the False Alarm Reduction Program, the reduction of false alarms has allowed county police officers more time to handle calls for service and become proactive in the communities of New Castle County.

At the program’s inception there were an average of 13,000 false alarms per year and a response time of approximately 25 minutes. New Castle County Police were losing over 300,000 minutes (5,000 hours) of officer time every year to false alarms. This is the equivalent of 2.5 officers spending an entire year working on false alarms. 

It has been shown that with implementation of a false alarm ordinance, false alarms could be cut by up to 40 percent. To download the online application to register your alarm system, please visit
