On October 10, 2007 the City of Reno adopted a model alarm ordinance, Chapter 8.06, Section 8.06.055
(Alarm Fees) of the Reno Municipal Code. In 2007, the police department responded to over 10,000 false
alarm calls. False alarms cost the City of Reno and its citizens thousands of dollars per year and take
police officers from actual emergencies. The ordinance also creates a registration process, provides for
annual alarm permit fees for residential and business alarms, and provides for fees for false alarms to
encourage all alarm users to maintain the reliability of and to properly use their alarm equipment.
