False Alarms

The San Ramon Police Department administers the City's False Alarm ordinance (Ord. 237 § 1, 1993), which is designed to make alarm systems more effective and to reduce the number of police responses to false alarms.

A permit is not required for installation of an alarm system.

For questions about effectively managing your alarm system, false alarm fees, or to update your commercial emergency contact information please call Clauvette Hartway at (925) 973-2792 or email
