Sonitrol-Kimberlite Alarm Monitoring Station Sets Record for Apprehension Assist in 2015

The company set the record for the second consecutive year, assisting in 1,254 apprehensions in 2015.

FRESNO, Calif. — For the second consecutive year, Sonitrol-Kimberlite’s central alarm monitoring station has assisted law enforcement in more arrests of criminal trespassers and burglars than any other security organization in the United States. Sonitrol-Kimberlite assisted law enforcement in 1,254 apprehensions in 2015 — an increase in nearly four more apprehensions per week from the previous record of 1,081 apprehensions set by Sonitrol-Kimberlite the previous year.

The company says its year-over-year growth can be attributed to the capabilities and efficiency of its verified alarm monitoring system. The verified alarm systems are monitored by live operators 24 hours a day from Sonitrol-Kimberlite’s central monitoring station in Fresno.

“The numbers have established beyond question that verified alarms are the best technology in the electronic security industry,” said Joey Rao-Russell, president and CEO of Sonitrol-Kimberlite. “But that’s not enough for us. The Sonitrol-Kimberlite central station continues to prove that focus towards accomplishing a common goal garners amazing results. Not only does this team outperform all traditional alarms year after year, but it has become out standard to out-perform ourselves as well.”

Sonitrol-Kimberlite says its advantage is its operators assessing disturbances before most alarms are ever triggered, allowing for discretion as to whether law enforcement should be dispatched to the scene.
