Security Alarm Permits


County residents living outside the city limits who have security systems in their homes or businesses are to obtain an alarm permit from the Clerk's office. View the permit application (PDF).

Initial applications and renewal applications may be submitted by mail or in person to the Clerk's office.


When an alarm is initially installed, an application for permit should be submitted along with a pro-rated fee based on the month of installation. View the prorated fee schedule (PDF).

Permits are renewed each year in January by submitting a thoroughly completed permit application along with the fee of $15 for residential and $25 for commercial buildings.

Accepted Forms of Payment

  • Cash
  • Checks made payable to "Maury County Clerk" - We do not accept out of town checks.
  • Credit Cards - There is 2.25% fee which is paid directly to the card issuer (VISA, Mastercard, etc.) plus 25 cents per transaction.


If there is a crisis and emergency responders arrive at your home or business where no permit is displayed, you may be subject to fines.
