The Kane County Sheriff's Office has been responding to a growing number of false alarms over a number of years. Between the years of 2013 and 2015, officers responded to approximately 3,900 burglar alarms.
Our office wishes to work together with community-minded people in order to achieve a higher number of registered alarm users, which helps to reduce response times and provides the officer with valuable information upon arrival. The Sheriff's Office program plan is to reduce the total number of false alarms, save time spent responding to unwarranted calls, and create a positive impact on police productivity. The 2016 Alarm System Ordinance was recently updated and passed by the Kane County Board. The purpose of the restated Ordinance is to bring the policy into compliance with current technology standards and costs. The Kane County Alarm System Ordinance can be located
here in its entirety.
