What is an alarm permit and why do I need it?

The Anaheim Police Department strives to deliver a high quality of service to the residents and business owners in the City. If the Police are dispatched to your home or business in response to an alarm activation, or other emergency, and no one is present, it is very important that the Police Department be able to contact someone responsible for the location in a timely manner. The Anaheim Police Department has two forms that provide valuable information to Police Dispatchers that can be relayed to responding Officers.

These forms are an application for a "Burglar Alarm Permit," and an "Emergency Notification Card." Both forms have spaces to list a person(s) who can take responsibility in the case of an Emergency. A Burglar Alarm Permit is required for any alarm installation in Anaheim. An Emergency Notification Card should be submitted for those locations without alarms. These forms can be picked up at the front counter of the Anaheim Police Department, downloaded or printed the services page of the Anaheim Assistance Center web site, or they can be completed and submitted online:
