HENDERSON, NEV. Using a sledge hammer to break a window, two hooded men broke into Smok’n Hot Vapors electronic cigarette shop on January 2nd, 2015 One burglar looted the store for valuables while another waited outside.
“I don’t think they were after anything in particular,” says Ann Tevelde, the store’s owner. “They just came in and tried to take everything they could find.”
Verified Alarm System Ordinance
It only took three and one half minutes for the intruders to smash display cases and empty cash drawers. As in more and more towns and cities across America, Henderson NEV had recently enacted a “Verified Alarm Ordinance” requiring a confirmation of unauthorized activity before dispatch. Old school conventional blind burglar alarms in Henderson are of very minimal benefit.
The unfortunate intruders did not realize that the store was using one a Honeywell Video Verification alarm system. The sophisticated alarm instantly transmitted video to the central dispatcher who was able to confirm that there was a genuine threat and police were dispatched immediately. The hoodies worn by the intruders were of no use to conceal their identity because they were fully identified when they were arrested and booked.
A DragonFly Video Verified Alarm Can Assist in Arrests
Henderson has a relatively small police force and finds that Video Verified Alarms like those manufactured by Honeywell Security & Fire and sold consumer direct through getadragonfly.com have become a “Force Multiplier” to help them combat property crime.
The need to make more effective use of police manpower is not only an issue in Henderson. Towns across America have seen the benefit of video verified alarm systems to actually assist in arrests and reduce cost. Already overburdened budgets are provoking municipal agencies to move to a Verified response only policy for alarm dispatches.
