What separates Centralized Vision from most security companies is that we offer remote-camera monitoring with real-time response options. Centralized Vision’s 24-hour technicians constantly monitor our clients’ property and assets through video verification and serve as a deterrent to prevent crimes from occurring.
To further prove that point, one of our technicians was recently monitoring the video feed during routine tours of the security cameras at the West Highland Shopping Center in Phoenix one evening. Around 8 p.m., our technician noticed a female walking around the loading dock that was in a secured area behind Food City. At 8:03 p.m., our technician called the Phoenix Police Department’s dispatch and described the female trespassing suspect to them. Phoenix Police dispatched a unit to the shopping center at 8:06 p.m., and by 8:11 p.m. a police officer had arrived on the east side of the property. The police officer did a quick visual inspection while patrolling the property but did not see the female suspect and left the property at 8:16 p.m.
After another tour of the video feed from the shopping center at 8:23 p.m., our technician noticed the female suspect was still trespassing on the property and called the Phoenix Police Department’s dispatch again. Two police officers arrived on site at the shopping center at 8:50 p.m. and found the female suspect. They alerted the female that she was in a secure area at the shopping center and that she was trespassing. The police officers escorted the female suspect off the property at 9:02 p.m. and left the scene.
Although the female suspect was not arrested, an example like this shows how Centralized Vision acts as a deterrent to criminal activity on our clients’ property in addition to the perseverance of our technicians to work with local police departments as a team. We have established great relationships with local law enforcement agencies so that they can trust our technicians for giving them detailed information when we call them after witnessing criminal activity.
