Dade City Police Donation

DADE CITY, FL – Sonitrol, a verified electronic security company, donated several training weapons to the Dade City Police Department in Dade City, Florida. The training weapons will be used for the next new hire class taking place in March. 

“The training weapons donated will be used to train new hires on fire arms, beyond their basic police training,” says newly appointed Lieutenant William Rowe of Dade City Police Department. “The main use will be training for building searches and how to quickly draw a fire arm from its holster.”

Sonitrol and law enforcement have been supporting each other for over 55 years. With over 178,000 criminal apprehensions since 1977, law enforcement truly relies on the Sonitrol Verified Electronic Security businesses to help them get criminals off the streets. In addition to donating training weapons, Sonitrol also shows appreciation to law enforcement by donating K-9’s, participating in national Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and assists in lunch & education classes across the country.

“For more than 50 years, Sonitrol has been a proud supporter of the law enforcement community.  Our partnership plays a vast role in the success of the Sonitrol apprehension program”, says Julie Beach, Vice President of Sonitrol and Dealer Sales, “This donation was just a small token of our appreciation for all they do to help keep our communities and customers safe.”

Consider the Facts

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.


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.


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