Are you a business owner or resident with an alarm system in Margate? If you answered YES, keep reading.

The City of Margate Ordinance 17-129 requires all businesses and residences with alarm systems to have valid alarm permits. Failure to complete and return this application with your $25 fee for residential or for non-residential permits (check or money order payable to the City of Margate) will result in fines or court citations for non-permitted alarms.

The permit holder must notify the police department in writing to: Margate Police Department Attention: Records Unit/Alarm Coordinator 5790 Margate Boulevard, Margate, FL 33063.or via email at of any changes in the information on this permit.

*An alarm permit cannot be transferred to another person.

Protecting your home and property by installing an alarm system is new best practice to ensure the safety of your home and business. For those residents and business owners who install an alarm, we encourage you to maintain the operational reliability of your system. In addition, the proper use of your system is essential in order to reduce or eliminate unnecessary police and fire emergency responses due to false alarms and alarm malfunctions.

You can help reduce the number of false alarms by becoming familiar with what causes them and the prevention techniques that can reduce them.
