Alarm Permit Application

Requirements & Payment Information

City Ordinance No. 0-05-52, Section 26-51 requires an alarm system to have a valid alarm system permit. The cost is $50 for new and renewal permits. The permit is valid for one year.

Whether new or renewing, you may pay for your alarm system permit online. On this site, you may also review your alarm history and pay any outstanding false alarm fees. You may also mail in a completed Alarm System Permit Application with a check or money order. Please note that a permit will not be created or renewed without a completed form and payment. Submit payments to the:
City of Missouri City
Attn: Alarm Permitting
1522 Texas Pkwy.
Missouri City, TX 77489

An alarm permit will be mailed within seven business days following payment and verification of information. To verify if you live in the city limits of Missouri City, please visit the Fort Bend Central Appraisal District website and enter your address.

The Renewal Process

Registration renewal forms are mailed the month before your permit expiration. Please review this form and update information which may have changed since last year. Up-to-date information helps emergency responders in the event of an emergency situation. After making updates, please be sure to sign and return the form to indicate your intent to renew (only if renewing my mail). Alarm companies are not required to sign renewal forms.

Note: Alarm permits are not transferable. If you have moved or no longer have an alarm system, please indicate this on your renewal form and return it to the address above so that we may close your account. If your renewal and payment is not received before your current expiration, your permit will expire. Any person operating a non-permitted alarm system is subject to a fine of up to $500.
