- Bylaw No. 1382 applies to Lake Country, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and Peachland
that states if you have an alarm system you are required to have a permit with the False Alarm Reduction
- Helps reduce the number of false alarms the RCMP attends each year, freeing police resources.
- For more information about the RDCO Alarm Bylaw No. 1382 please refer to the False Alarm Reduction Program and read the BylayNo. 1382
Who should have told you that you require an alarm permit?
- When an alarm company installs a new alarm system they are to advise you, their client, of the Security
- Many security companies registered you for your permit and charge you directly for the first year. After the
first year, if you did not pay your renewal invoice, your account would have become unregistered.
