The City of Chamblee first adopted an alarm system ordinance in 1999 and it was subsequently revised in 2008. Pursuant to this ordinance it is unlawful for any person to use an alarm system, which is designed to elicit, either directly or indirectly, a police response without first obtaining a permit for such alarm system from the city. Fire and auto alarms are exempt from this requirement.
An Alarm Permit application can be obtained from the police department or this web site and must be submitted to the police department. The department will then issue a permit decal which must be prominently posted at the front entrance so that it is visible from outside the structure. There is no fee for the permit. Any change in the information on the permit application must be submitted to the police department within 30 days.
