Commercial Alarm Permit Registration

Alarm System Registration Required for Los Gatos Businesses


On November 2, 2009, the Los Gatos Town Council adopted an Alarm Ordinance requiring all commercial alarm systems to be registered with the Town of Los Gatos. The annual registration process will enable the Town to better respond to alarm issues and address the needs of the business community.
