Sonitrol Pacific, a verified electronic security company, announced four successful apprehensions in the nonprofit and business sectors recently, thanks to verified audio intrusion systems and quick response from local police dispatched to the scene.

On Dec. 13, Sonitrol Pacific Verification Center Operator Denise Smith dispatched police to a public health clinic in Everett, Wash. after receiving alarms from a panic button at the reception area. Using the building’s security system audio panel, Smith confirmed loud voices coming from the clinic, leading to an arrest of the suspect within minutes of the initial alarm.

On Dec. 16, Operator Mike Young detected audio and motion alarm activity at a nonprofit organization in Seattle. Young heard faint banging from the building’s exterior, followed by sounds of movement and rummaging. Seattle Police arrived and caught the suspect, who had removed a window to gain entry and damaged the interior of the building, as he was attempting to flee.

On Dec. 19, two more apprehensions were made within 30 minutes of each other with the aid of audio verification security systems. Early in the morning, Operator Jessica Culver received audio of breaking glass, crashing and banging from the back area of a Portland advertising agency. Culver dispatched Portland Police, who found the suspect with a computer in his hands and took him into custody. Prior to the design and installation of a Sonitrol Pacific custom security solution for the space, the agency experienced two other break-ins and suffered expensive losses.

Shortly after the alarm in Portland, Operator Kris Etheridge received audio of clattering noises and movement at a graphics and printing shop in Everett that has been a long-standing Sonitrol Pacific customer. Motion activations confirmed that there had been a forced entry into the building and the person was still inside. When local police and K-9 units arrived, they found the suspect hiding in the bathroom.

Now more than ever, organizations and businesses are reevaluating the benefits of immediate response to emergency situations. Since 1978, Sonitrol Pacific has offered complete security solutions for businesses, schools, government facilities and homes in the Northwest.
