City Of Chula Vista Alarm Program
Over the course of the last several months, the City Council of the City of Chula Vista approved a new Security Alarm Ordinance, along with new security alarm permit and fee schedules. Additionally, the City Council approved a contract with PMAM Corporation to administer the Security Alarm Program for the Chula Vista Police Department. These important changes will allow the Police Department to manage its limited resources and better serve the needs and expectations of our citizens and business community.
The new Security Alarm Ordinance and City Master Fee Schedule call for the following changes:
Fines for false alarm responses by the Police Department will be charged to the permitted site as follows:
- First violation $100
- Second violation $200
- Any additional violations $500
Billing for false alarms will begin July 1, 2014, with all security alarm locations starting with a zero alarm count. False alarms will be billed based upon a rolling 12 month period.
Security alarm permit fees have been modified to $28.75 each year for both residential and business sites. Two-year alarm permits obtained prior to the new program changes will be honored until the permit expiration date.
Effective July 1, 2014 citizens and business owners will be able to obtain permits, update permit information, pay permit fees and false alarm fines online, by mail or by telephone via PMAM Corporation. The Chula Vista Police
