Renew an Alarm Company License

Are you wanting to renew your alarm company license? You're in the right spot.

Companies which operate a business of installing or monitoring alarm systems in homes and businesses within the city limits of Topeka must be licensed by the Topeka Police Department to do business in the city.  

Individuals that work in sales and as system installers for these companies must also be licensed through the police department. Companies and individuals who are licensed have met requirements and passed a background check in order to receive their license.

The City of Topeka and the Police Department do not endorse or imply in any way their approval of any individual business’ policies, practices or methods of doing business. It only means that they have met the licensing requirements and background checks needed to obtain a city license and operate a business of that type within the City of Topeka.

Follow the instructions below to submit your license application for alarm installation, monitoring or both.

At this time we do not accept online payment.  ALL fees must be paid in person or by mail.
