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,

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