Permits are required by city and county police departments. All home and business locations are claimed city or deemed county. Just because you live in Austin does not mean that Austin police department responds. Every address has three responding authorities to consider; Police, Fire and Medical. In the event you are unsure make contact with Point Security or with your local police department to verify.

All locations have only one responding authority. You must pay the alarm permit only if responding authority requires.

*Please make sure and check all city and county websites for the most current alarm permit information, or check with your local police department.
