Welcome to the HCSO's
Alarm Administration Site

The law requires every house and business with an activated security alarm system in unincorporated Harris County to have an alarm permit. Getting a new Alarm Permit or renewing your existing Alarm Permit is easy. Just click on the appropriate link below.

Did you know that more than 90% of alarm calls answered by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office are false? Responding to false alarms creates an enormous burden in terms of manpower and expense, and reduces the time deputies have for responding to legitimate law enforcement needs.
Government entities or homeowners age 65 or older must apply via mail or in person

Please Permit Us to Permit You and get your alarm permit today!
