Alarm Permits

The City introduced a new permitting system for San Gabriel businesses and residents with burglar alarm systems. These permits are for alarm systems that are designed to detect an intrusion into a building with an audible sound or the transmission of a signal or message that calls upon a response from law enforcement or public safety.

Residents and businesses with permits will get up to three false burglar alarm calls in a revolving 12-month period. Each additional false alarm activation will result in a $120 fee per incident or call. Those without a permit will be charged $120 for each false alarm activation. 

Alarm permits are $45 for initial application. 

Renewal fee is $23 and must be submitted with payment within 30 days of permit expiration date.
