It’s important for us at Sonitrol to always remember that we can do what we do because of the brave men and women who serve as first responders. While our technology can detect security breaches, it’s dispatchers, police officers, firefighters, and many more who respond to the threat directly. We have always been grateful for the trust we have been able to build with law enforcement. This trust comes from our dedication to not only alert officers of actual threats but also to watch their backs when they arrive on the scene. Law enforcement loves Sonitrol because we work hard to give them the upper hand.
When paired with our Sonitrol audio detection system, our security cameras activate when the burglary system is activated. Then the video is recorded for later playback. If your Sonitrol audio system is activated, our staff can see and hear what is going on in your facility. We can tell police officers where the burglar is located in your building and even describe their appearance. This allows police to enter the scene with the most relevant information, hopefully leading to a quick and simple arrest. Our police response time is as low as 8 minutes versus the 45-minute response non-verified alarms produce. We have over 178,000 apprehensions and counting!
Our relationship with law enforcement is not only built on the warnings we do give but also on the ones that we don’t. False alarms cost time and money, not only to you but to the police force. The last thing you want is for officers to arrive at your business on high alert in response to a false alarm. That’s why at Sonitrol, our award-winning Central-Station operators can detect false alarms to prevent police from ever having to check out the scene and cost your business money and trust. With 98 percent of alarms being false, having a Sonitrol System builds a solid relationship with your local law enforcement.
“Instead of investigating after the fact, video gives us the means to catch criminals in the act and actually prevent crime and reduce costs.”
– Past Chair, Texas Police Chief’s Association
Our close relationship with first responders is one of the things that makes us stand apart, and we couldn’t be more thankful. So to all the first responders, thank you for your service and continual protection.
