The City of Brea requires business and residential alarm users to obtain a valid alarm permit (City Ordinance Chapter 8.38) prior to operating an alarm system. All permits must be renewed annually. The alarm permit is available from the Brea Police Records Division (front counter), Brea Civic & Cultural Center, #1 Civic Center Circle, Brea, California. A permit application can also be downloaded by clicking here, or requested via phone or mail. The application must be completed and returned with the permit fee to Police Records for processing. The Brea Police Department conducts free False Alarm Awareness training classes in an effort to educate alarm users and minimize costly false alarms. Quality Public Safety is the top priority of the Brea City Council. False alarms draw on valuable police resources, require thousands of hours of work, and cost more than $150,000 annually to manage. In an effort to reduce false alarms, fines are charged for three or more false alarms. Please contact us for a schedule of classes and more information. See the Police Records listing for business hours.
