Anyone wishing to apply for a Burglar Alarm Permit should first review Chapter 4, Article V, of the City of Tyler Code of Ordinances.

(After clicking on the Ordinance link, use the search form and type in Burglary.) The Burglary and Robbery Alarm Ordinance provides guidelines, for both alarm users and alarm companies, encouraging the proper operation and maintenance of alarm systems. Included are registration requirements, explanation of excessive false alarm fees, rules for suspension and revocation of permits, as well as a procedure for appeals.

To obtain or renew a Burglar Alarm Permit:

  1. You may apply/renew and pay the permit fee for your burglar alarm system on-line at the following link CryWolf
  2. You may acquire a printed Alarm User Registration & Renewal Application Form, or you may pick a form up at the Tyler Police Department.

You must then complete and submit your registration form with a $35 residential fee or $75 non-residential fee to the Tyler Police Department Burglar Alarm Coordinator, 711 W. Ferguson, Tyler Texas 75702. You may submit your registration form by mail with a check or money order made payable to the City of Tyler; or, you may submit it in person with cash, credit or debit card payment at the Tyler Police Department.

Your Burglar Alarm Permit will be issued for a one-year period. It will be mailed to the address you have given on your registration application form for the Responsible Party. Also, approximately one month prior to your permit's expiration date, a renewal application form and invoice for the renewal fee; $35 residential or $75 non-residential will be sent to your Responsible Party's address. Please notify the Burglar Alarm Coordinator, at 903-531-1054, if changes must be made to your Responsible Party or your contact information before that time.
