Vermont State Police Alarm Registration

The Vermont State Police (VSP) responds to both residential and commercial security alarms within its coverage area. You must register your alarm and pay an annual fee of $50.

After registering and paying the fee, your alarm will receive a specific ID number and be entered into the state police software program.

VSP gives a warning for the first false alarm, but then charges $50 for the second offense and $75 for the third. After the third false alarm, the VSP will place the alarm in non-response mode. There is a comprehensive reinstatement procedure that must be followed to return the alarm to regular response status.

If you live in a town that is not within VSP’s primary coverage area, you should still register your alarm but do not need to pay the fee.

VSP will respond to all verified emergencies — regardless whether or not an alarm is registered.
