Alarm Permit Renewals
In an effort to reduce costly false alarms, the City of Brea requires all residential and commercial alarm users to obtain alarm permits (City Ordinance Chapter 8.38) and pay the required fee, prior to operating an alarm system. All permits must be renewed annually by July 1st. Annual fees are $50 for businesses and $25 for residents.

The alarm permit is available from the Brea Police Records Division, located at 1 Civic Center Circle, Brea, California. A permit application can also be downloaded here. Applications can also be requested via fax or mail. The application must be completed and returned with permit fee to Police Records for processing.
