Why Government Buildings Require an Integrated and Verified Security Solution

An out-of-date conventional CCTV systemAt first thought it would be easy to understand why most people would have the impression that a government building is safe from crime - surely a criminal would assume that the government employs the best security solution they can find?

Unfortunately, this isn’t true, and criminals know it. In fact, many government buildings still do not possess security systems that are specifically designed for each individual location. 

Government buildings such as offices and buildings; town halls; public housing, community centres, libraries and public buildings; infrastructure and utilities; as well as compounds and storage areas often lack the required security.

Government’s of all levels must ensure that both inside and outside locations are monitored, and Sonitrol Western Canada is perfectly positioned to monitor movement with our unique and innovative verified video CCTV technology.

Having helped the police apprehend more than 175,000 criminals to date, Sonitrol alarms successfully deter thieves, stop the destruction of equipment and property damage and make vandalism on government buildings a thing of the past.

How does verified video work?

An integrated Sonitrol verified CCTV security solution will be monitored remotely in real-time by trained security professionals that work in highly-sophisticated environments, where they use state-of-the-art and innovative security technology.

Once activated by audio detection, heat or motion sensors, a live stream will be broadcast directly to this monitoring facility, where professionals will either verify the alarm as a threat and contact the police or verify the detection as a false alarm.

This solution is far more effective than conventional alarm systems, which always have high false alarm rates. Once an alarm is verified, Sonitrol instantly alerts the police who dispatch on average in just 3-4 minutes for Sonitrol alarms.

With the speed in which police are dispatched to verified alarms, Sonitrol’s security system almost nullify the threat of crime and stop criminal activity before it takes place. Conventional alarms, on the other hand, merely provide footage of who the criminal might be after the crime has been committed - and that’s if they’re even captured by the camera.
