RETAIL BREAK IN - DIAMOND & AUTO

RETAIL BREAK IN - DIAMOND & AUTO
Audio file

The customer, a custom stereo dealer, had their front windows broken in a classic "smash-n-grab" style. Of the three burglars, one was watching out for police. Near the end of the audio, the "lookout" believes "it's not clear" and they leave.

The dispatch audio is the best. As you will hear (it's kind of quite) 911 asks if it's a silent alarm. She then asks to hear the break-in and says "Let's keep you on the line, it's better for us and the poor customer." The amazing part, at the end, the dispatcher says "Call us back if you have any more information, I think we have a vehicle". That is under 2.5 minutes!

Two of the perps were apprehended in their vehicle a short time after the dispatch. Later, the mother of the third called in to turn in her son. As we all know, with a smash-n-grabs it can be very hard to make an apprehension. Here's 3 more bad guys caught, in a smash-n-grab thanks to Sonitrol and quick police response!

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.
