Tired of false alarms? We hear you! So was the retired police officer who founded Sonitrol…That’s what prompted the officer, Al Cronk, to team up with an inventor over fifty-five years ago to develop an alarm system that would accurately determine if a break-in was in progress. Traditional systems depend on motion detector equipment, which unfortunately, can easily be triggered by something as tiny as a warehouse mouse. In his career as a police officer, Cronk had responded to way too many false alarms. His inventor friend, Robert Baxter, came up with the perfect solution, the audio sensor. This innovative sound device launched the Sonitrol alarm, the most dependable and verified alarm system in the industry. Using this audio technology, Sonitrol detects sounds at the first sign of a break-in attempt. Before the would-be perpetrators have even gained access to a facility, our Central Station operators can listen in and hear them trying to gain entry. Our team immediately dispatches law enforcement, who can arrive on scene before anything has been stolen and usually before anyone has broken into the facility.
Because of Sonitrol’s capability to verify true break-ins, we have the fastest police response times and the lowest false alarm rates in the industry. If you want to ensure your business, school, or facility is protected around the clock and that false alarms are a thing of the past, contact us today for a free assessment from one of our security design consultants at (800) 444-1191. We look forward to providing you with security peace of mind.
Evansville Police Department made two apprehensions after our Central Station team dispatched on a Sonitrol alarm. Just the other night, our 24/7 monitoring team received sounds of glass breaking at a local restaurant with a verified audio system by Sonitrol. Immediately, our operators dispatched law enforcement, who arrived on scene and took two suspects into custody. One of the perks of a Sonitrol audio or video alarm, is that it is silent. Would-be intruders never realize we have notified police and that they are on the way. This helps contribute to our high apprehension rate of 181,000 and counting. Way to go, Team Sonitrol and police! Safeguard your business or home with a Sonitrol system today. Call us at 1-800-444-1191 for a free assessment and to hear about our current specials.

On Saturday morning at 1:52 am, operators received an audio alarm at an Owensboro church. Police were immediately dispatched. At 2:02 am, Sonitrol again contacted police dispatch to let them know there was another alarm on a new door. Operators were informed that officers were on the scene. The key holder called to let Sonitrol know that two teenagers were apprehended and 2 more were on the run.
A big THANK YOU, to the Owensboro Police Department!
Verified systems are the way of the future. They help police by reducing false alarms. And when an alarm is verified, police are dispatched to a burglary in progress and not just another burglary alarm. Police can respond knowing they might catch the burglar in the act. Catching the burglar in the act, allows the property owner keep their property and limits the loss to just a broken door or window.

At 5:00 am Sunday morning, Sonitrol of Evansville operators received a verified audio alarm at a local church. Despite the excellent response time of the Evansville Police department, the criminals had fled. Sonitrol operators then received a second verified audio alarm at a body shop located down the road. When Evansville Police arrived at the body shop, 2 suspects were taken into custody. Suspects had property from the body shop and the church.
Verified alarms are the new sweeping technology in security solutions.
The above apprehensions were made using verified audio systems. Verified systems help our law enforcement tremendously. How?
Not all business security systems are the same. Law enforcement across the country respond to thousands of false alarms a day. These dispatches cost their respective agencies millions of dollars a year. More importantly, false alarms needlessly dispatch law enforcement who could be responding to an actual emergency. Some municipalities have started fining users for false alarms. Other agencies have established enhanced verification policies which require alarm users or someone acting on the their behalf to visually verify that there has indeed been a break in.
This can be dangerous for the customer and chances are, the criminal will get away with the property. A verified alarm is confirmation, either visually or audibly, of unauthorized entry or attempted unauthorized entry onto a property. In essence, someone has been seen or heard on the property. Using the latest technology in cameras or audio devices, police can be dispatched knowing there is a crime in progress. These monitored devices feed live video and audio to central station operators. The operators can then relay pertinent information, not only of a break in, but details including how many suspects are on the premises and their location.
Benefits to the alarm users include:
- Faster police response time – your alarm is a priority.
- Increased apprehension rates – the faster law enforcement is at the location, the more likely they are to catch criminals “red-handed”.
- 100% total protection.

- A tri-state area church camp fell victim to a break-in. The criminals took appliances, including a double door refrigerator and kitchen utensils.
- A mentally disturbed man walked into a Henderson KY private school, screaming and was finally removed by police
- Vandals spray painted a church in downtown Evansville several times causing extra work and costs to the church.
It is a sad sign of the times that even our religious communities fall victim to this type of crime. Unfortunately, the peaceful nature of these worship centers, offer crooks an easy target for a burglary!
SECURITY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR CHURCH
Protecting your buildings
When a burglary occurs, the loss to the church is not only a huge financial hardship, but emotionally stressful for the volunteers who work so hard to provide a safe, beautiful environment for parishioners and attendees. Many churches are not staffed all day. Most churches are empty at night. Having a monitored intrusion system protects your church from would-be thieves when your building is empty. A monthly fee is a small price to pay in preventing damages and loss that may include numerous amounts of irreplaceable memorabilia!
Access systems – beneficial to your church?
Have you ever had to track down that former member that still has a key? Can you confirm beyond a shadow of doubt that there are no unauthorized duplicate keys to your church floating around in the community? Do you have a daycare or a school in the church? An access system or “key less entry” may be the solution to all these problems. Consider these benefits:
- Limit the access to your building
- Eliminate the cost of re-keying or changing locks
- Allow only authorized access to critical areas
- Integrates with your security system for arming and disarming
- Online access allows for easy activation and deactivation of a key fob or access card.
- Build activity reports to show details including, who, time and location of each entry.
- Create schedules to allow users into the building on specified days and hours.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. IP cameras provide a deterrent to criminals because they know they will be caught on video. Powerful new technology offers users:
- The ability to log into a secured account on a computer or smart phone from a remote location to instantly view live footage.
- DVR equipment that can record clear detailed footage to give to law enforcement when necessary.
- Verified video monitoring which improves the ability to potentially catch criminals before they leave with church property.
Facilities in Indiana, Kentucky or Illinois are mandated by law to have specific fire equipment depending on occupancy. Though the laws in each state differ slightly, one thing is certain: Fire codes are a very serious matter! Safety of everyone in the building is the highest priority. A fire marshal can shut down a facility without warning until all safety violations are resolved. Stiff fines can also be imposed on a violating facility. To be sure that your facility has the proper fire equipment and monitoring requirements, check with your local fire marshal.
Remember, foresight is less expensive than hindsight!
