EL PASO - If you live in an unincorporated part of the county and you want to protect your home from burglars, you're going to need a permit.
This week, El Paso County Commissioners approved a measure requested by the Sheriff's Office to require permits for home alarm systems.
According to online documents, it would cost $30.00 for a three year permit. It would also allow the Sheriff's Office to fine homeowners $75.00 for the sixth or more false alarm. They could also charge you the full cost to send out emergency crews if the false alarm was caused by you.
