The Evansville Police Department’s newest officer makes his official debut. He’s a German Shepherd named Doc. The department says a generous donation to the EPD Foundation from Sonitrol Alarms allowed them to add another dog to the force. Sam Standring is the grandson of Sonitrol founder Dr. William Standring. Last year his grandfather died and he had the opportunity to make a significant donation to the police foundation. Standring says his grandad was a comedian and would get a laugh that “Doc” is named after him, “This is our way of honoring my grandfather and carrying on the tradition of helping catch the bad guys.”

Consider the Facts
RISING FALSE ALARM RATES

Over 98% of alarm activations are false alarms. And with each alarm call costing taxpayers in police time and resources, more and more communities are looking for ways to respond to alarms more effectively. Many communities now require verified response—confirmation by an alarm company or an eye witness that an actual intrusion is in progress—before dispatching police.

LONGER RESPONSE TIMES

The average police response time for non-verified alarm activation now exceeds 45 minutes in many communities. The longer the response time, the lower the chances of police stopping an intrusion in progress and apprehending the criminals.

NON-TRADITIONAL THREATS

Increasingly sophisticated crimes, including internal theft and fraud, and crimes accompanied by other disasters such as fire or explosions, overtax traditional alarm systems.
