Since the new alarm ordinance took effect in January 2005, the Vacaville Police Department has seen a significant decrease in false alarm calls throughout the City. This reduction in false alarms has allowed officers to focus on real crimes, and make our responses to real alarm activations safer and more efficient.

False alarms are preventable! Working together, alarm users and the Police Department can help keep Vacaville safe. For more information on how you can prevent false alarms, download our Alarm Brochure.

All alarm users, residential and commercial, must register their systems with the Police Department. You may access the registration form through the Police Department website or in person. If you complete the form online, please note that it cannot be saved for future use. Upon completion, please mail it along with a $25.00 check to:
