Alarm Permits and Fees

ALARM PERMITS AND FEES ARE NOW ADMINISTERED BY THE RIALTO ALARM PROGRAM

Dear Alarm System Owner:

As an alarm subscriber you should be aware of the City of Rialto Municipal Code sections 7.01.010 through section 7.01.090.  These municipal code sections describe the alarm permit requirements, fees, exceptions, and penalties for excessive false alarm responses.

All burglary, robbery, and fire alarm system owners operating within the City of Rialto must possess a permit for said alarm.  If your alarm system permit has expired, it needs to be renewed immediately.  All alarms must be renewed annually on the anniversary date of the initial permit payment.

 To obtain or renew an alarm permit, please contact the Rialto Alarm Program at (877) 484-7720


Effective July, 1, 2016, the cost for each alarm permit is:

1.      Residential customers …………………………………….. $18.20

2.      Commercial customers ……………………………………. $24.30

As an alarm subscriber, you should act immediately to correct any problems that may be causing false alarms.  Every false alarm response takes an officer off the street and may prevent that officer from responding to a true emergency call.
