The use of alarm systems is regulated within the City of St. Albert and no such system can be installed or used without first acquiring the necessary permit.
Responding to false alarms is costly to the City. The Alarm Systems Bylaw was passed in 2002 in an effort to reduce the number of false alarm reports being made to the RCMP. In 2012, amendments were made to the Alarm Systems Bylaw 25/2002 in order to reduce the number of false alarm calls and move towards more of a user-pay service.
