Recently PPD has been informed of some resident concerns posted on social media sites pertaining to receiving alarm billing notices for the City of Placentia from a company located in Texas. This is a valid notice and not fraudulent. Like many cities today, Placentia contracts out most of its processing of citations, billing notices, and collections etc. to outside vendors. The City has contracted with this firm which specializes in alarm permit billing for several years now and it is based in Texas. We encourage residents and business owners who are concerned about any notices they receive from the City of Placentia or the Police Department to always call the Police Department immediately at 714-993-8164 or City Hall at 714-993-8117 to confirm the authenticity of the notice. Thank you!
