TIL it is illegal to install or maintain "steel doors, wooden planking, cross bars, alarm systems, dogs, lookouts or any other means... to prevent, impede, delay or provide warning of the entry into a structure or any part of a structure by law enforcement officers" if the building or structure is used "for the manufacture, distribution, dispensing or possession or control with intent to manufacture, distribute or dispense, controlled dangerous substances" in the State of New Jersey. Seems like a CCTV system would be covered by this law (pdf).
The tiny police department of the smallish town I recently moved away from aquired themselves an armored vehicle recently. They've been having great fun doing no-knock raids, both in-town and for departments in surrounding towns, and the suspects keep getting charged with "keeping a fortified house" among other charges (never resisting arrest, though, because it's not that kind of place, which is why they used to knock on the door and allow suspects to surrender peacefully).
