Did you remember to set your alarm system when you left your home last time?

  • Setting your alarm helps alert law enforcement and neighbors to a possible crime in progress.

Is your alarm registered?

  • Both Montgomery County and Harris County require permits for alarms. To receive a permit, complete an agreement and submit it with the fee.

Do you know how your alarm works and what features your alarm has?

  • If the answer is no, then it’s time for a refresher. To learn more about your alarm, contact your alarm company. False alarms use law enforcement resources that could be used elsewhere. The community goal is to eliminate false alarms.

More than 90 percent of alarms in Montgomery and Harris County are false.

To register an alarm, learn the rules for your county and find out about any additional fees possible:

Montgomery County: visit mcsoalarm.mctx.org or call 936-760-5830

Harris County: visit hcsoalarmpermit.com or call 713-755-4600
