Alarm Registration

Alarm Registration Information

Each year the Bernardsville Police Department responds to approximately 800 alarm activations, most of which are either accidentally activated or are due to faulty equipment. Without the alarm owner's information, we have no way of notifying you of a problem. Additionally, having the proper contact information allows us to handle these calls efficiently and not waste valuable emergency service resources.

On March 25, 2021, The Borough of Bernardsville adopted an Alarm Registration Ordinance (2021-1877). A major provision of the ordinance is that all alarms, which “alert emergency services upon activation” must be registered with the Police Department. We request that you complete this registration form in its entirety and return it to our records bureau. Also, any changes made after your initial registration must be reported to the Police Department immediately by submitting a revised registration form. This form is available at Police Headquarters or you may download the form listed below. Initial registrations are subject to a one time registration fee of $50. The fee must be submitted with your initial registration form. Checks or money orders payable to the Borough of Bernardsville can be submitted via regular mail. Exact cash payments must be made in person at Police Headquarters.  

Completed registration forms can be mailed or emailed to:
Bernardsville Police Department
