Alarm Permits

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.

Who needs an alarm permit?

All commercial and residential alarms are required by City Ordinance to obtain an alarm permit from the Citrus Heights Police Department. New alarms must be permitted within 30 days of installation.  Failure to do so may result in a penalty fee.
