Business Keyholder Program

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office announces a new registration service to all commercial businesses that presently do not have an audible alarm system. The service allows deputies and emergency services, responding to calls at your business, access to contact information of key holders. Access to this information is restricted to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office and other emergency services. Businesses that have alarm systems DO NOT need to register for the key holder program, however, they are still required to register their security alarm.

Businesses that have alarm systems DO NOT need to register for the key holder program, however, they are still required to register their security alarm.

Registered key holders should live locally and be able to respond to the property within 20 minutes.
