Pierce County Sheriff's Department Alarm Program

Alarm School

Completing the alarm school training class is a requirement for most false alarm appeals.

The Sheriff’s Department Alarm Coordinator will be notified of the appeal, and they will review the computer dispatch records of the alarm incident and the account history of the alarm user. The Alarm Coordinator will then contact the alarm user to discuss details of the alarm response or fee, answer questions, provide educational information, and reach a resolution. In most cases, the alarm user will be required to complete an educational online school as part of the resolution.
