The Laguna Beach Police Department responds to burglary and robbery alarms. If you have a burglary or alarm system for your home or business in the City of Laguna Beach, you must obtain an alarm permit from the City through our alarm program administrator, Alarm Program Systems (APS). Each permit lasts two years and costs $35 for a residential alarm system and $50 for a commercial alarm system.
To apply for an alarm permit and register online, visit the Alarm Program Website. If you need assistance getting registered, call the help desk at (888) 865-9770
