Alarm Permit Renewals

Alarm Permit Changes: On July 1, 2008 City Council approved a change to the existing Alarm Bylaw 4676/87. Alarm Permits now expire and are subject to a renewal every four years.

The renewal process enables the Winnipeg Police Service to update its data base to reflect accurate, current information for all alarm systems within the City of Winnipeg.

Once renewed, your permit will again expire four years from the renewal date.

Alarm permit renewals can now be paid online. To renew your permit online you will need your permit and account number from the renewal notice.
