Apply for a permit to install alarm systems

Companies that intend to sell, install and repair alarm systems require a permit from the police.

When we consider your application, we check that you have the required knowledge and that you are in other respects suitable to work with alarm systems. Your company must also have an organization appropriate for this business.

Security companies who have been authorized by the County Administration do not need to apply for a permit to install alarm systems.
