As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure safety and efficiency in our community, the city has enhanced its False Alarm Permit program 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.
