False Alarm Reduction Program

The Greater Sudbury Police Services Board adopted a False Alarm Alarm PicReduction Program Bylaw in 2002.  This came following a comprehensive analysis of the Service's response to false alarms.  Full operation of the Program began January 2003.

The Program is designed to reduce one of the most significant misuses of police resources and free officers for legitimate calls for service.  Out of the alarm calls received, only five percent are the result of a criminal offence; the other ninety-five percent are false due to a number of factors including user error or improper installation of the alarm.

Registration in our False Alarm Reduction Program covers a 3-year period and each registrant receives one free false alarm for each year of the registration.  Every false alarm after the free one within that year of registration is subject to a fee of $75.

If you are not registered and have a false alarm that Police attend, the fee is $125.00.

To register in the Program, please complete and submit the False Alarm Form.

Further comments and inquiries regarding the False Alarm Reduction Program can be made to the attention of the False Alarm Coordinator.  Please send us a message through the following link: Email!
