I don’t understand it, but for some reason when school is out, kids put great effort into getting back into class.

When you’ve provided security for as many schools as we do and for as many years as we have, you know the summer months see a big bump in mischief-making on school campuses.  Incidents of vandalism and trespassing spike during July and August.  Although Sonitrol Pacific’s early and verified detection gets police on scene as fast as possible and minimizes losses for our clients, the best offense is a good defense and putting preventive measures in place yields significant dividends for years to come.

To support you in increasing the security of your school and decreasing risk, Sonitrol Pacific invites you to attend a free webinar April 22 on school security.Register today.
