Bill Limiting Municipal Regulation of Electric Fences Now Law

Governor Murphy, on Thursday, signed into law S-2419, which prohibits municipal regulation of “perimeter fence intrusion protection systems” (electric fence) and the regulation of locksmith and alarm businesses, among other things. Effective immediately, P.L. 2021, c. 21 prohibits a municipality from: 

  • requiring the licensing or registration of locksmiths or alarm businesses,
  • requiring a locksmith or alarm business to submit information about the business’s system,
  • requiring a locksmith or alarm business to pay and alarm registration or licensure fee to a third party person or business,
  • requiring a permit or fee for the installation of a perimeter fence intrusion protection system in addition to an alarm system permit ,
  • imposing an installation or operational requirement for perimeter fence intrusion protection systems inconsistent with requirements set by the new law,
  • impeding the installation or continued operation of a perimeter fence intrusion protection system, or
  • prohibiting the installation or use of a perimeter fence intrusion protection system.

You should review this new law with your municipal attorney to ensure that your ordinances comply with the new limitations.
