Sharp bangs detected by Sonitrol Pacific audio security sensors allowed police to apprehend four suspected trespassers at a middle school February 12.
Monitoring Operator Michael Young received the initial impact-activated audio sensor alert from the school just after 5:00 a.m. Young heard noises indicating glass breaking from many areas inside the school and called officials.
Tacoma Police and the school’s security guard responded quickly to the verified alarm and caught four suspected trespassers. One of the suspects was carrying a glass cutting device.
Fortunately, no windows were broken and none of the suspects got inside the school.
