Alarm Permit Renewals

Have you received a notice from the Roseville False Alarm Reduction Program to renew your burglar alarm or pay an excessive false alarm fee, asking you to send payments to P.O. Box 749879 in Los Angeles? This is a valid, legitimate message on behalf of the City of Roseville and the RPD.

The City of Roseville updated its alarm ordinance last year, requiring annual updates of alarm permits for a $5 fee. These updates help us ensure we have current emergency contact information in case there’s an alarm at your house or place of business. We've contracted with an outside company, Crywolf, to handle our alarm permits and false alarm billing.

For more information on our false alarm reduction program, visit our website at, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.
