Sonitrol reaches milestone with 175,000 criminal apprehensions
Sonitrol, a provider of verified electronic security, says it has reached a new milestone by assisting with 175,000 documented criminal apprehensions since 1977, when the company first began recording apprehension statistics.
Sonitrol says its audio verified alarm detection methods detect true alarm events versus false alarms and notify law enforcement.
“Considering that 98 per cent of alarm calls are false, coupled with a less than 1 per cent apprehension rate when responding to non-verified alarms, it is easy to understand why many law enforcement agencies are making the shift to verified alarm response policies,” said Julie Beach, police relations program director for Sonitrol. “We pride ourselves in continuing the legacy of Sonitrol by innovating better, faster alarm verification techniques while building strong relationships with our local communities and law enforcement.”
In 2015, Sonitrol announced the introduction of SonaVision Video Verification, which, coupled with the Sonitrol Mobile Application, allows both central station operators and customers to view live and recorded video. And last month, Sonitrol announced it was the first systems manufacturer to release a UL/ULC- approved product that initiates alarms driven by glass-break analytics.
