Powhatan County Public Safety is requesting your assistance in ensuring the timely and efficient public safety response upon the activation of your security alarm system. The Board of Supervisors revised the County Code Chapter 38, Burglary and Robbery Systems, Data Sec. 38-64. The Code now requires owners of a security alarm system to submit a Security Alarm Users application upon new installation or transfer of ownership of the residence or business. Please take the time to fill out the Security Alarm Users application. It could mean saving valuable minutes in an emergency.
