Who: Operator Mike and Redmond PD
What: Two suspected trespassers in custody
When: May 24, 2013 at 3 a.m.
Where: A construction jobsite in Redmond, WA.
How: Mike was monitoring accounts in the Seattle region when he received activations from the construction site security system installed at a site in Redmond. Mike could see a man walking through the site, which had been armed earlier that night. He dispatched the Redmond Police and was able to see them walking through the site. The arresting officer later called back and said that they had arrested two people for trespassing charges but no damages were apparent at the site.
Who: Operator Kris and Seattle PD
What: One suspected trespasser apprehended
When: May 22, 2013 at 5:00 a.m.
Where: A construction jobsite in Seattle, WA.
How: Kris was monitoring Seattle accounts when she received motion viewer activations from a West Seattle apartment construction site. She could see a faint figure through a window opening. Kris dispatched Seattle PD and then received another motion viewer activation that allowed her to see the suspect more closely. The man looked to be older and had dark, thinning hair and a jacket with light patches on it. A little while later, Kris received another activation from the construction site video security system, which showed officers on site with K-9. While Kris was waiting for additional activations to load, the PD dispatcher called and confirmed that 1 individual was found on site.
Watch the footage that led Kris to dispatch:
Secure Pacific had the privilege to assist law enforcement with an “Active Shooter” exercise at a local college here in the Pacific Northwest late last week. The event centered on police, facility, student, and emergency medical response in a time of crisis.
Secure Pacific’s role in the event was to provide the high quality color IP cameras and the labor to move the cameras from site to site. The video recordings of the exercise should provide valuable training opportunities for emergency responders and the college.
While no one likes to think about violent attacks at places of learning, it has become increasingly clear in recent years that more preparation is always better when it comes to life-saving emergency responses. Watching the intensity and focus that the law enforcement officers put into this practice exercise was truly inspiring.
Our thanks goes out to the law enforcement, emergency medical responders, facility and students involved in the exercise and we are proud to have been chosen to help with such an important event.

Who: Operator Robin and Seattle PD
What: One suspected burglar in custody
When: May 19, 2013 at 4:15 p.m.
Where: A construction jobsite in Seattle, WA.
How: Robin received motion viewer activations from the job site video security system and used verified video surveillance to view a man walking through the site and pulling what appeared to be wire. Robin dispatched police, who arrived onsite and found the suspect. Robin promptly sent the video footage (coming soon!), which enabled the officers to determine that the man was not only trespassing but stealing wire as well.
You invest a great deal of your valuable time and expertise into running a successful store. In order to keep that business profitable, you need a retail security system to make sure theft doesn’t hurt your bottom line. According to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention, more than $13 billion worth of goods are stolen from retailers each year. That's more than $35 million per day.
Here are several ways Secure Pacific can help you ensure you don’t become another statistic:
Electronic access control
You can keep your inventory safe by implementing a business keyless entry system. This puts all the control in your hands – if you want to keep certain areas of your establishment off-limits to the public, we can do that. If you want just one or two trusted managers to have access to the stock room, we can do that, too. Electronic access control is an easy way to make sure thieves can’t get to your valuable items.
Live video from anywhere
You probably spend many hours a day on site at your store, but even the most dedicated business owner needs to get away sometimes. With video surveillance systems from Secure Pacific, now you can check in on your business anytime. You can log in anywhere you have an Internet connection to view video footage, even on your smart phone! That way no matter where you are, you can personally verify that your business remains safe and protected.
Rushing back to your store in the middle of the night to deal with a false alarm is the last thing a small business owner needs, or wants, to do. With our alarm verification technology, trained security operators are monitoring video feeds 24/7. When an alarm is tripped, they can immediately check to see what set it off. If it’s a stray balloon or a pesky squirrel, they will simply re-set the alarm without disturbing you. If a true burglary occurs, they’ll notify authorities immediately. Police are more likely to respond to verified alarms when an operator is on the other end of the line describing an actual crime in progress. In fact, Secure Pacific operators have helped police apprehend 20 individuals so far in the first three months of 2013 alone.
If you want one less thing to worry about as a business owner, contact Secure Pacific about our retail security systems. We use our expertise in planning and implementing security systems so you can focus on running your business.
