Alarm Registration

Bernardsville Borough Alarm Registration Ordinance 2021-1877

ATTN: Bernardsville Residents, Business Owners and Property Owners 

Each year the Bernardsville Police Department responds to approximately 800 alarm activations, most of which are either accidentally activated or are due to faulty equipment. Without the alarm owner’s information, we have no way of notifying you of a problem. Additionally, having the proper contact information allows us to handle these calls efficiently and not waste valuable emergency service resources. 

On March 25, 2021, The Borough of Bernardsville adopted an Alarm Registration Ordinance (2021-1877). A major provision of the ordinance is that all alarms, which “alert emergency services upon activation” must be registered with the Police Department. A Bernardsville Police Department alarm registration form is attached to this letter for your convenience. We request that you complete this registration form in its entirety and return it to our records bureau. Also, any changes made after your initial registration must be reported to the police department immediately by submitting a revised registration form that is available at Police Headquarters or on the Police Department website. Initial registrations are subject to a one time registration fee of $50. The fee must be submitted with your initial registration form. Checks or money orders payable to the Borough of Bernardsville can be submitted via regular mail. Exact cash payments must be made in person at Police Headquarters. No fee shall be required for registrations submitted on or before September 30, 2021.
