Sonitrol Pacific gives you state-of-the-art electronic security technology – audio, video, access and fire – and a team of highly trained professionals to back it up. Our team is ready to respond to incidents and questions at five locations in Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and Boise.

Our audio and video technology allows us to immediately verify whether a break-in is in progress or a false alarm has sounded. Once the activation is verified, Sonitrol Pacific operators alert the proper authorities immediately, or reset your system from our Everett Verification Center® without having to disturb you or the police. Sonitrol Pacific’s intelligent verification technology prevents loss while other systems alert you that a loss has occurred.

A recent Security Products article cites a National Sheriff’s Association report that 30 percent of small businesses fail due to burglary, robbery, shoplifting, and/or fraud.

The article offers these tips for small business owners to protect their assets.

– Provide adequate interior and exterior lighting. Interior lighting should be visible to those outside. Exterior lighting should illuminate dark areas around buildings and parking lots.
– Install an obvious video surveillance system to serve as a prevention tactic, help with identifying possible criminals and deter fraud. Once cameras are installed, place security signs at points of entry to publicize the presence of those cameras.
– Utilize a safe with a mechanism to make periodic drops during the day to minimize the amount of cash in registers. Immediately drop large bills to discourage potential robbers.
– Use background checks and other methods to screen all employees before hiring as the best defense against internal theft. Train new hires about security and safety practices.
– Install silent alarms to notify police and give them a better chance to catch perpetrators.
– Reduce advertising banners on front windows and displays behind windows which can obstruct viewing into the store.
– Instruct employees to be the first line of defense in loss prevention by greeting or acknowledging every customer who enters. Provide personal service to as many customers as possible.
