Protecting Churches

When we recently finished a camera installation at a church in Wauwatosa, WI, we didn’t figure on the system coming into play so quickly. But, it did. And, that’s a good reason to consider a camera system if you head a religious congregation.

None of us want to think that a burglar or criminal will do harm to a church, synagogue or mosque. But Sadly, incidents do happen. Your building may be considered a “soft” target.

While we don’t know the intentions of those who broke into the Wauwatosa church, we do know they threw a brick through the window because our cameras captured that on an early Friday morning after we finished the install on Monday. It’s the fastest we can remember where an installation led to helping with an apprehension.

The video showed two men looking at the door, going back up the street, then returning, before taking off running after trying to open the crash bar. We received multiple views of the car as they drove up AND away. We’re glad we were there with video technology to capture the incident. It’s the type of help we’re proud to provide our customers, and to law enforcement so they can better do their jobs.
