According to the 2011 FBI Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, there were 987 robberies, 6,149 burglaries and 25,858 instances of property crime reported during the first half of 2011 in the Puget Sound Area.
In the US, a commercial robbery is committed every four minutes, and retail stores with no burglar alarm system are 3.5 times more likely to be victimized than those retail stores with an alarm system.
What can the business owner or property manager do to prevent their company from being added to the FBI Uniform Crime Report? The answer is simple. Choose a verified security system to protect the facility.
Verified security systems are systems that provide “on-site” verification, or confirmation, with video, sound or a combination of sound and video technology by the monitoring center, allowing for a verified response.
"Verified Response” describes “on-site” verification, or confirmation of a genuine threat, by means of an eye witness or audio, video or a combination of audio and video by a verification operator verifying a need for police response to a crime in progress at the protected facility.
Law enforcement officials respond to verified security systems because the chances of catching the criminal in the act are increased over responding to another false alarm from non-verified alarm systems.
Don’t let your business get added to the FBI Uniform Crime Report. Protect your company with a verified security system.
