Security Alarms

If you have an alarm, there are some things that you need to be aware of to get the most benefit from having one. 

  1. In the event of an alarm incident, Precinct 5 Constables should be the first call made from your alarm company.  Constables are in the area and can respond quickly to a call, possibly apprehending the suspects if they are still on the property.  Precious minutes are lost if your alarm company calls you first and then the Constables.  The Constable phone number is 281-463-6666.
  2. Purchase a City of Houston Alarm permit.  If the Houston Police Department is listed as a responder with your alarm company, it is REQUIRED that you have an approved alarm permit with the City.  Permit applications may be made online and more information is available at  There is a nominal fee for the application, permits are valid for one year and must be renewed annually.  
  3. And finally, set your alarm!  To protect yourself as well as your property, set your alarm when you are home.  Set your alarm even if you are leaving briefly to take the kids to school or walk the dog.  Criminals may be aware of patterns and know when your home will be vacant.  Crimes occur quickly.  It only takes minutes for a criminal to break into a home, take valuables and get out.  An activated alarm can be a strong deterrant.
