Effective January 26, 2021, the Citrus Heights Police Department has partnered with Phoenix Group Information Systems to maintain and operate the City's Alarm Permit Program and to continue working with our community through false alarm prevention and education. Commercial and residential alarms must be registered with the City by purchasing an alarm permit that is renewed on an annual or tri-annual basis.
The City's Emergency Alarms Municipal Code can be viewed here.
