City of Oregon City False Alarm Reduction Program

The City of Oregon City has an Alarm Ordinance Number 19-1002 (Municipal Code, Chapter 5.08) to help with the reduction of false alarms in an effort to decrease unnecessary police calls for service.

As of November 1, 2022, the City of Oregon City has partnered with Alarm Program Systems, LLC/City Support, (APS), to manage the False Alarm Reduction Program.

APS will be responsible for alarm permit registrations and false alarm billings while providing excellent customer service to our residents, businesses, and government entities.

Current Alarm Program Users

If you purchased your alarm permit prior to November 1, 2022, your permit was purchased through our previous alarm program vendor, PMAM. Your permit and information have been transitioned to our new program vendor APS.

At your next renewal, the renewal notice will be from our new program provider APS. Your current alarm and other permit resources are now located on the Oregon City False Alarm Reduction Program website.
