    Which situation fits you best?
    • I have an alarm permit, and I would like to pay my alarm invoice, login to make account updates, or review my account history.
      An account already exists for you in the system. You may access your account with a combination of your account/permit number and an invoice number or password. Your account/permit number is the six-digit number on your original permit or recent invoice. The invoice number is the seven-digit number listed at the top of your invoice. Please select 'Login' below to continue.
    • I need to apply for a new alarm permit and do not have a current permit at another address.
      The address you provide will be validated against our database. If an account already exists for your location, you may not be able to register at this time and will be prompted to contact the Alarm Unit. If you have a permit and have recently moved, please do not create a new permit. You can contact our office to transfer your permit to your new location. To apply for a new permit, please select 'Register Your Alarm'.
    • I would like to cancel my alarm permit.
      I need to cancel my alarm permit and will not need another one within Palm Beach County at a different address. I have read the Ordinance and understand I may be subject to fines if operating an alarm system without a valid permit. Please select 'Cancel my permit' below.

    The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office responds to thousands of false alarm calls per year. These unnecessary responses result in an enormous burden in manpower and expense, which in turn reduces the time available to respond to real emergencies.
