If you are an ADT customer who recently received an “Urgent Alarm Permit Notice” from ADT in the mail asking you to confirm your permit number, please email the Sheriff’s Alarm Bureau with the following information:

  • Name
  • Address where the alarm is located
  • Contact information

You are welcome to call the Alarm Bureau directly at (916)874-4616; however due to the number of inquiries, their telephone system is experiencing a high volume of calls which are resulting in technical difficulties.
