Register an Alarm System
The Larimer County Sheriff's Office and Crywolf co-manage our local false alarm reduction efforts in unincorporated Larimer County. Larimer County developed an Ordinance in 2005 (available in pdf format at the bottom of this page) that requires permits for burglar alarm systems installed in both commercial and residential properties within unincorporated Larimer County. Properties inside town and city limits are exempt.
Business and homeowners should know that any burglar alarm system installed that may result in the response of the Sheriff'f Office requires a permit, which must be applied for at the time of installation. The first year cost to you is $50.00, and renewals cost $25.00 annually. Alarm installation companies are also required to pay for permits to operate within unincorporated Larimer County.
