Law Enforcements Trusts the Sonitrol Security Brand
Since 1977, Sonitrol Security has assisted with the capture of over 175,000 criminals. This success is a result of our verified surveillance technology that catches criminals in the act, as well as our strong relationships with law enforcement professionals across North America.
Unlike other security solutions available on the market, Sonitrol Security VERIFIES the source of an alarm at the outset, enabling us to keep false alarms to an absolute minimum. In fact, we have less than a 3 per cent false alarm record, while conventional alarms have a 98 per cent false alarm rate or higher.
It is because of these low false alarm rates, and our professionalism, that police take our calls seriously – they know our alarms are real.
In fact, authorities are so confident in our security technology that the average response time for Sonitrol Security activated alarms is 3.5 seconds, compared to response times for non-verified alarms which can be upward of 45 minutes.
This is because Sonitrol Security systems are regarded by law enforcement as witnessed events. Our central monitoring station operators observe the crime in progress and then provide police with verified, real-time information, even as they are on their way to the scene.
In situations where every moment counts, fast response times and informed officers mean there is a greater chance that the criminals will be apprehended with minimal damage to your business and property.
In comparison, other security systems, such as digital recorders and traditional CCTVs, detect an intrusion after the criminal is already inside your premises. If they do use employee operators, these operators may be managing as many as 15,000 systems simultaneously and depend on a bulb to light up and indicate a problem at your facility.
Once the red light turns on, they will call your business to see if anyone will answer the phone. When nobody answers (because chances are a criminal won’t answer your phone during a robbery), they will call you at an alternate number to ask what you think they should do next.
At this point, you must decide if you want to drive down to your business to verify whether there is a crime in progress or risk a false alarm.
In some cases, if you call the police without verifying the alarm, there is a strong likelihood that they will not respond, putting your business at greater risk.
When you combine all of these attributes – low false alarm rate, verified surveillance, continued communication throughout the apprehension process, and professional operators – and compare them against other systems on the market today, it’s no wonder Sonitrol Security has excellent community relations with law enforcement and police departments across Northern America.
