Nassau County Alarm Permits

Obtaining a mandatory Nassau County Burglar Alarm permit.

Whether it’s protection for your main entrance or a specific sensitive area, an electronic access management system, can help provide you with added flexibility that allows you to concentrate on more important matters, like your business.

Security Systems save local police departments millions of dollars in operating expense because they deter crime. By detering crime, police departments need less man-hours investigating burglaries, and they are able to quickly apprehend perpetrators.

However, in order for the police department to work efficiently and to reduce false alarms, alarm permits are sometimes required.

If the area your home or building is located in Nassau County and served by the Nassau County Police Department, need to have a current Burglar alarm permit on file. To get the permit, you will need to give the police department some basic information. The information is supposed to assist the police in identifying the location of your house, facilitate the job of the 911 operator, and speed of the dispatching of a patrol car.

If your city or village is not served by the Nassau County Police Department, such as Hempstead, Glen Cove, Old Brookville, Freeport, or Kings Point, then you do not need a permit.
