How do I get an application / permit?

Download a copy of the Application For Alarm Permit 2015 (DOCX). Complete it fully, and return it with the required fee to the address on the bottom of the form. You may also call the Alarm Unit at (512)-943-1340 and an application can be emailed, faxed or mailed via USPS, to you. You may stop by the Sheriffs Office and pick up an application. Your alarm permit will be returned to you in the mail. You do not have to post it in a front window, just know where it is in the event you must show proof of permit.
