- Alarm users are responsible for having a valid security alarm permit. The annual permit fee is $25.00 (Section 11-70.1 (c)).
- Alarm users who do not have a valid permit and have a police response to their site are subject to a fine (Section 11-69(B)(1)(2)).
The City of Oxnard has contracted with a vendor to manage its alarm program. Public Safety Corporation (“PSC”), who uses its Cry Wolf software, will take over alarm registration, false alarm notifications, billing, and collections. It will also provide customer support. We are currently establishing the necessary processes with them, and anticipate that they will begin their services on April 1, 2019.
Through PSC, alarm users will be able to renew their annual permits online. Once registered with PSC, users will have a logon and password, and may access their account at any time. Links to PSC will also be posted on the Police Department’s website, as well as on the City of Oxnard’s website in the near future.
Permit registration for those without computer access can be done through PSC at its customer service phone number, which will be announced in the near future.
