Sonitrol Pacific values our relationship with law enforcement agencies across the Pacific Northwest. They respond quickly when we call with an alarm at one of our protected sites, resulting in frequent arrests of suspected criminals.
I know the police trust calls from Sonitrol Pacific, but this morning I got a reminder of just how much. On December 18, despite the agency being stretched due to the snow event, 14 police officers and two police dogs responded to a verified alarm at Diversified Recycling. Two suspects were arrested. Similarly, on December 22, as more snow fell, 12 officers and two police dogs responded to a verified alarm at Check Masters and two suspects were taken into custody before they could get inside.
In 2008, Sonitrol Pacific celebrated our 30th anniversary AND our 5000th apprehension. As this monumental year comes to a close, I want to send a special “thank you” to all the agencies who know our alarms are verified and not a waste of their resources, and respond with speed and force to protect our clients.
