We recommend that you register your intruder alarm with the
Police and also with the Council so that someone can be contacted
in case of a burglary or nuisance alarm. Alarms, which have a 20
minute cut-out device fitted, can cause problems if there is a
control panel fault or if the system repeatedly trips to alarm
Why register your alarm?
Registering your alarm helps either the Police or the council to
alert a contact number provided by yourself, so that the alarm can
be attended to as quickly as possible.
A continually sounding alarm, which causes disturbance to
occupiers of neighbouring property, can be dealt with under the
Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005. In cases where
reasonable cause for annoyance is likely, the audible alarm may be
disconnected following complaint and the costs recharged.
