Emergency personnel respond to thousands of false alarm calls yearly. These unnecessary responses result in an enormous burden in manpower and expense, which in turn reduces the time available to respond to real emergencies.

Chapter 112 of the City's Code of Ordinances requires all residential and commercial alarms to be registered with the City in order for us to respond more efficiently to emergency situations.

You may register or renew online using this site.  You will find these options at the bottom of this page.

If you prefer to register by mail, please print and complete an Alarm Application form, attach a check for the applicable amount, payable to the City of Delray Beach, and mail these to Community Improvement / Alarm Unit, 100 NW 1st Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33444.

New registration fee: $25.00
Submit application within 10 days of violation or new alarm system installation.  If registration is not completed within the 10 days, a late fee of $100.00 will be charged.

Renewal fee: $30.00
Annual renewals will be mailed out by the City and are due back no later than May 1.

Information Changes: All registration information should be kept up to date.  You may update your account online here or report changes by mail to Community Improvement / Alarm Unit, 100 NW 1st Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33444.

Persons notified to respond to an alarm, by either the Police or Fire Department, must appear at the premises within 30 minutes of notification.  Failure to appear will result in the alarm registrant being assessed a fee of $100.00.

Alarm registrants will be billed monthly for false and/or malfunction alarm activity as follows:

First three in a calendar year (January through December) No Charge
Fourth $50.00
Fifth $100.00
Sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth $200.00
