Tacoma, WA, May 29, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Two suspected intruders circumvented a school’s door locks by using tape on the doors, but failed to account for Sonitrol Pacific’s detection technology May 24.
A Sonitrol Pacific operator received an alarm signal from the high school’s auditorium and he dispatched the school district’s guard service to assess the situation.
While the guard was en route, the operator heard a sharp bang through Sonitrol’s real-time audio sensors and he informed the officer of the activity at the school.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers located two women and took them into custody. According to officers, the suspects taped the doors so they would shut, but not lock, then returned later to enter the school unhindered. Although their plan allowed them to enter the school, Sonitrol's unique audio technology quickly detected the activity.
Sonitrol Pacific has provided schools, businesses and other organizations with verified electronic security since 1978. During its 30 years of business, Sonitrol Pacific has assisted law enforcement officials in apprehending 4,900 suspected criminals.
