As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure safety and efficiency in our community, the city has a False Alarm Permit program designed to minimize false alarms and reduce unnecessary police responses. Both residential and business alarm system owners are required to apply for a False Alarm Permit (SGMC 91.14).
Homeowners and business owners with alarm systems are required to apply for a False Alarm Permit (SGMC 91.14). The fee is $45 for the initial application and $23/year for renewals. With a permit, three complimentary false alarm responses are allowed in a rolling 12-month period. Additional false alarms will result in a $120 fee for each instance where police officers need to respond.
Without a permit, each false alarm leading to a police response will incur a $120 charge.
Applications are available in person at the Finance Department located at City Hall (425 S Mission Drive), and online at SanGabrielCity.com/1570. For any inquiries or assistance, please contact the Finance Department at (626) 308-2812.
Let's work together to create a safer community with fewer false alarms and more effective use of our valuable police resources.
