My alarm system has been disconnected and/or removed. What do I need to do?
You must notify City Hall if the alarm system at your property has been disconnected and/or removed. You may contact City Hall by email at email@example.com or 314-993-3439. You will need to provide the date of disconnection and the property address. If you do not notify us of changes you may continue to be responsible for payment of the Alarm Permit.
How do I notify City Hall that I no longer own a property?
If you are moving out of your alarmed property you will need to notify City Hall that there is a change of ownership. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide date of sale as well as property address. We will update our records.
What is an abort code?
For those who have an digital dialer alarm system that rings directly into our West Central Dispatch, an abort code will be assigned so the dispatcher can confirm with an authorized person at the alarmed location if police presence is required. This is a Alpha-numeric code that will be given at the time of alarm system set up to cancel false alarms with the dispatcher. The abort code does not change once assigned.
How do I obtain an abort code?
Only those installing a NEW digital dialer system will need an abort code. To obtain this code, complete and pay for the Alarm Permit application. Bring a copy of the Alarm Permit application to the Ladue Police Department at 9345 Clayton Road Ladue, MO 63124 Monday through Friday 8 am - 4 pm. Identification will be required.
