In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Police Information Check & Alarm Control Section office is operating on an appointment only based service. This is intended to protect the health and well-being of the community and our staff.
We encourage you to still apply for your Alarm Permit or Pay for a False Alarm fee by mailing your application/invoice including payment by cheque/money order. Cheques must be made payable to the “City of Edmonton”, to:
Alarm Control Detail
Edmonton Police Service
Edmonton, Alberta, T5H 0H7.
Alternatively, if you are unable to provide a cheque as payment and wish to pay by Credit card / Debit / Cash you may book an appointment to attend our office. You can book the appointment under the “Police Information Check” option.
Alarm Control Detail is responsible for the administration of the City of Edmonton Alarm Systems Bylaw #10922. This includes: issuing & maintaining alarm permits, reviewing all false alarm reports, issuing false alarm fees, suspending and cancelling alarm permits, issuing violation tickets, and working in collaboration with both the alarm industry and alarm permit holders to reduce the number of false alarms reported to the Edmonton Police Service each year.
In 2016 the Edmonton Police Service introduced Enhanced Call Verification (ECV) as a method to reduce the number of false alarms police respond to. This has led to a reduction in the number of false alarm response fees issued each year to home and business owners. Please check out our Enhanced Call Verification page on what to expect when an alarm is reported to the Edmonton Police Service.
All emails and phone messages received outside of regular business hours will be returned on the next business day.
