As a locally owned and operated company, the Sonitrol Pacific team lives, works and plays in the communities we serve. The safety and security of our communities is of utmost importance to us.
In addition to providing security systems that actually catch criminals (to take them off the streets rather than just sounding an alarm that drives them from one business to another), we also actively support law enforcement officials in our communities and Crime Stoppers organizations.
Every quarter, Sonitrol Pacific donates to Crime Stoppers $100 for each incident at one of our protected sites that results in the arrest of suspected offenders. During the fourth quarter of 2009, 45 suspects were caught in 21 separate events. This means we’re donating $2,100 to Crime Stoppers organizations in the Pacific Northwest.
Here’s how this quarter’s donation was divided up:
Portland Branch – 2 incidents; Portland Metro Crime Stoppers – $200
Tacoma Branch – 6 incidents; Tacoma/Pierce County Crime Stoppers – $600
Seattle and Everett Branches – 13 incidents; Puget Sound Crime Stoppers – $1,300
We are grateful to the police departments and sheriff’s departments in our communities. We anticipate a long and effective partnership in catching bad guys.
