Managing Your Alarm System

Last Updated: 4/27/2010

If you have a burglar or robbery alarm system, the Roseville Police Department encourages you to use it wisely. Alarm systems can provide good protection from criminals, but they are ineffective and can waste valuable police resources if they are not managed well.

The City of Roseville requires that all alarm holders, both businesses and residents, have a permit. The City also has a false alarm ordinance; alarm holders will be fined if their system generates too many false alarms. The Roseville Police Department's community services staff is more than willing to help alarm holders with questions about their alarm systems.
