Houston Area Alarm Permits

Most of the towns & counties in the Greater Houston area require an alarm permit. The police may not respond without a valid permit. If they do respond and a permit has not been filed, most agencies will fine the homeowner or business owner for any false alarms. If you have a permit filed, you usually get 3-5 free false alarms per year (varies by jurisdiction).
