Ensuring resident safety should be a top priority for property owners and managers. Without a secure community, your residents will likely not be your residents for long.
In this Arrest of the Month video, we took swift action after seeing two people with a gun in an apartment laundry room.
A little before 1:00 in the morning, a Stealth Monitoring security operator watched two people enter the laundry room at an apartment community. One of the individuals was carrying a gun which he placed on top of a dryer. The suspects then placed some paraphernalia on top of the washing machine. Due to their suspicious behavior, our monitoring operator called police.
Officers arrived as the pair was trying to exit the laundry room. Three police officers entered the room and took the suspects into custody.
Creating a Safer Community for Your Residents
Providing a safe community is essential to the success of your multifamily residential property. Security ranks as one of the most heavily considered factors when people are deciding on a place to live…and stay. If residents feel threatened, scared or unsafe, they might leave the first chance they have.
Stealth’s live video monitoring solution has been effective at getting rid of crime by proactively monitoring cameras for up to 60% less than traditional security guards at hundreds of apartment communities – Class, A, B, C, and D – across North America. Trained security operators monitor live security cameras to watch for and help deter crimes in progress.
In this video, our monitoring operator observed the strange behavior of the two people with a weapon in the laundry room. Based on their activity and the site protocols, our operator called police. This quick action led to the arrival of the officers while the suspects were still on the property and ended a potentially dangerous situation.
