Sonitrol Pacific Dispatch Garners 5,000th Apprehension

Everett, WA, December 17, 2008 --( Sonitrol Pacific earned their 5,000th apprehension with the arrest of three suspected burglars by Portland Police December 6. A record like this is incredibly rare in the electronic security industry and reflects Sonitrol Pacific’s commitment to early and verified detection of criminal activity.

Sonitrol Pacific Operator Michael Young received an impact-activated signal from the club just after 5 a.m. and listened to real-time audio to verify it. He heard a “mechanical buzz” noise, sounds of movement and voices, and dispatched police. Portland Police arrived at the club and saw three suspects on the roof attempting to escape. Officers took the three into custody, then used a police dog to make certain no one else was hiding inside. While doing the search, police officers discussed the effectiveness of the Sonitrol Pacific security system (actual audio of incident available upon request).

Sonitrol Pacific, a Sound Security Inc. company, began providing electronic security services to businesses, schools, government facilities and organizations in Everett, Wash. in 1978. Beau and Debra Bradley founded Sound Security with the mission of creating a company that provided exceptional service and extraordinary security technology. Sonitrol Pacific’s apprehension record is evidence of that mission in action. Today the company operates offices in Everett, Seattle and Tacoma, Wash.; Portland, Ore.; and Boise, Idaho.

Sonitrol’s unique audio detection technology allows monitoring operators to verify every signal that comes into Sonitrol Pacific’s Operations Center and take appropriate action. Verifying signal activations reduces false alarms and increases law enforcement agencies’ ability to apprehend suspects.
