The City of Rock Hill enacted a false alarm ordinance in 2006 to encourage proper use of alarm systems and reduce false alarm calls.  The alarm permit is an important part of the ordinance because it requires alarm users to provide the Rock Hill Police Department with the names, addresses and phone numbers of two people who can respond to the location of the activated alarm if the need arises. There is no cost to register your alarm.  Please contact the Rock Hill police department at or 803/329-7222 to register your alarm, or to update your contact information on your current alarm permit.

Effective January 31. 2006, a new False Alarm Ordinance went in to effect.  The ordinance requires that all Alarm Systems located within the boundaries of the city limits of Rock Hill to be registered with the Rock Hill Police Department Alarm Coordinator.  

It is extremely important to ensure that the department has current information on each Alarm Registration.  To update a registration, you may call 803/329-7222 or drop off or mail in another Alarm Registration form with the updated information to the address noted on the form.  Should you have any questions, please call the Alarm Coordinator (803) 329-7222.

Since the passing of the Alarm ordinance, false alarms have been reduced by 20%.  The reduction in false alarms is allowing the department to spend more time responding to Calls For Service and being pro-active in areas of identified criminal activity.
