The False Alarm Reduction Act, which requires property owners to have a permit for alarm systems, goes into effect on January 1, 2016. Under the law, it is a violation for anyone to cause an alarm system to operate which results in a call to the Ulster County Sheriff, police officers, and other first responders, such as firefighters and emergency services, without a valid permit issued by the Ulster County Sheriff. A separate permit is required for each alarm system. An application fee of $10 applies. Click here to become familiar with this law.
