Alarm Ordinance Update. Ordinance 12-8 was recently adopted amending Chapter 8.11 of the City Municipal Code relating to alarms. The ordinance requires all alarm systems to be registered annually. Existing alarm permit holders must re-register their alarms into the new system. There is no alarm permit application fee. Registering your alarm automatically grants an approved permit unless notification is given regarding issues affecting the approval process. The new ordinance provides for two false alarms within a one-year period without penalty. Third and subsequent false alarms will result in a fine. The city has contracted with a third-party vendor, Public Safety Corporation who provides a program called “Cry Wolf” to track and issue alarm permits and false alarm invoices. Click here to access the City's False Alarm Reduction Program to register your alarm. Alarm registration is also available over the phone by contacting the Cry Wolf Customer Service Center at (855)-694-8281 Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
