Santa Monica Alarm Permit

On July 9, 2013, the Santa Monica City Council adopted the Santa Monica Municipal Code 3.56.030 “Alarm Registration,” adding to Chapter 3.56 Regulation of Alarm Systems; False Alarms, requiring any person owning or operating an audible alarm system to register such alarm system with the Santa Monica Police Department and pay a required registration fee.

During the registration process, the Santa Monica Police Department may require that a registrant provide information to the City to protect public safety and aid response efforts, including but not limited to, information about residents that are elderly or disabled, firearms at the property, potentially hazardous material/chemicals, and animals that require special handling.

In an effort to comply with said ordinance, the Santa Monica Police Department has created a convenient online registration system. You can register your alarm system at Paper forms are available upon request from the Alarm Registration Desk at (310) 458-8481.
