All documents, including the initial Alarm System License Application, must be sent to the mailing address listed below:
Clark County Department of Business Licensing
500 S. Grand Central Parkway, 3rd Floor

Further details regarding the step-by-step business license application process can be found on the county’s “Regulated Business License” webpage. Also, renewal for licensing is done fully online through the Department’s Online Renewal web portal.
Applicants who enroll in our monthly plan don’t have to worry about renewing their Alarm Installer Bond. Your surety bond will remain active as long as payments are fulfilled. As for bondholders who choose our annual or multi-year options, Jet will send you a renewal invoice far before your bond term expiration date hits. Standard payment is all that is required to keep your bond on file with the Business Licensing Department.
If you need to cancel your bond, you can send us a written cancellation request to email@example.com. Jet will immediately notify Clark County, and once the notice has been received, the Business License Department will release the liability of your bond within 30 days.
Monthly plan bondholders must make one last payment for the 30-day cancellation period as the bond is technically still active; all future payments will cease once this last step has been finalized. As for refunds, bondholders who paid in full and are cancelling early may receive a reimbursement for any unused premium. Available refunds will be sent to you once the liability period has officially concluded.
Licensed individuals and businesses who install alarm systems must follow all licensing regulations set in Chapter 6.76 of the Clark County Code of Ordinances. A violation of such rules may lead to the suspension or permanent revocation of your business license, as well as possible civil action from a damaged client.
The code lists negligence and intentional wrongful acts as license violations, so causing damages to a client’s home when installing an alarm system and then refusing to fix it or pay for the damages is subject to a license violation and civil action. In cases where civil action is pursued and a judge rules in favor of the harmed party, the court will typically file a claim on the licensee’s bond if they are unable to or refuse to pay for losses caused to the claimant.
If you receive a court-ordered claim notice, immediately contact Jet at 855-296-2663 so that we can begin the claim process. The Jet team will ask that you provide us with all available information and documentation regarding the accused violation as we will need these tools for our own investigation.
Claims on the Clark County Alarm Installer Bond that are valid must be paid out by Jet. It is important to note that claim payments cannot exceed the $2,000 bond limit. You, the licensee, are ultimately held responsible for your actions and must reimburse Jet for the claim amount paid on your behalf. Failure to comply can result in future difficulties obtaining license bonds, which are typically required for various licenses in Clark County and the State of Nevada.
