Check With Your Security Alarm Company

Be sure to contact your security company to learn what their procedures are regarding alarm permits and if they have records showing you have a current city alarm permit.

Many times they do not have records that you have applied for a permit.  Some security companies require that you send a copy of your permit to them.
