In 1969, a successful dentist named Dr. William Standring (Doc) opened the Sonitrol of Evansville, Indiana franchise.  Sadly, Doc passed away in 2015, but the Sonitrol of Evansville team found a creative way to honor his legacy. This past June, Sonitrol of Evansville made a generous donation of $8,700 to the Evansville Police Department for a new K9 officer. In memory of Doc, the K9 was named K9 Officer Doc as a way of recognizing Doc’s passion for helping Police apprehend criminals using audio verified alarms. 

Last month K9 Officer Doc made his first Sonitrol apprehension of two criminals with the help of a Sonitrol audio verified alarm, and now holds a special place in the hearts of many in the Evansville community. Congratulations K9 Officer Doc on your apprehension and thank you for helping to keep the community of Evansville safe!

And thank you to the other officers who helped K9 Officer Doc with the apprehension.

Verified alarms help increase Officer safety and assist in apprehensions by allowing our operators to hear what is happening at a location and communicate the information to police.  At Sonitrol, we support law enforcement and appreciate all they do for our communities!

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.
