This overnight security company is a Stealth Monitoring client. The following commercial property unfortunately isn't. The shopping center didn't have proactive live video surveillance and suffered an expensive crime.
The suspect was asked to leave an Indianapolis, Indiana location. The bar patron went to his car. A security guard approached the suspect and told him to leave the shopping center property. The suspect shot the overnight security guard. An Indianapolis Police report said that the security guard was taken to an area hospital. The overnight security guard had possible internal injuries.

At 3:35am, a man walks into the laundry room at an Irving, Texas multifamily apartment complex. He carries a screwdriver and a silver case. The suspect tilts several washing machines to determine how much change they hold. A proactive Stealth Monitoring overnight security operator calls the local police.
The thief takes an electric drill from his case. He uses the drill to remove the protective case from the change compartment. He starts to work on a second washer when the police arrive.
ABOUT STEALTH: Stealth Monitoring designs, installs, services, and monitors live video security solutions nationwide.
Typical video security systems are reactive. They're designed for interior spaces. So they wait for a trigger to sound an alarm and alert the police AFTER criminals have already been on your property, scoped it out to find security weaknesses and get needed tools, and broken in to buildings. This often results in false calls, delayed police response time, and gives criminals time to get away.
Stealth Monitoring takes a proactive approach with live video security surveillance to augment or replace night security guards. Our highly trained staff remotely monitors the outside and inside of your property to help prevent crimes before they happen. Stealth live video security systems employ high resolution IP megapixel video cameras. We don't wait for alarms. We watch for and evaluate suspicious activity in real time. Our trained operators activate speakers at unwanted trespassers. Would-be thieves and criminals typically go running off your property since they had no idea someone was watching them. We can call your night security guard and police with live reports on criminals often BEFORE they break in, do damage, or cause a loss.

Stealth specializes in proactive and intelligent live video monitoring that can significantly improve threat protection and police response.
