Alarm Registration Program

The City of San Ramon is launching a new alarm registration system aimed at increasing community safety. The program's goal is to reduce false alarms, which allows police officers to respond to emergencies and other calls for service in a timely manner. Each year, San Ramon Police officers respond to anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 false alarms across the city.

Beginning immediately, every San Ramon residence or business with an alarm system must obtain an alarm permit. Permits are free and annual renewal is required. The permit is valid from January 1 to December 31 each year.

Existing alarms must be registered by September 1, 2022. New residential and commercial business alarms must be registered within 30 days of installation.
