American Alarm Video System Helps Police Crack Down on Texting While Driving

It was a clear July morning and two Rutland, Massachusetts police officers were walking across Main Street in a marked crosswalk. The approaching Ford Explorer had plenty of time to stop for the pedestrians. Instead, it was almost a tragedy.

A video surveillance system installed at the Rutland Police Headquarters by American Alarm captured the incident. The video clip of the officers jumping out of the way of the vehicle was released to the media and helped draw national attention to the major and growing problem of motor vehicle accidents, personal injuries and fatalities caused by drivers distracted while texting.

Water Leak at Shrewsbury IT firm

Report WA 09302015-1315

September 30, 2015 1:15 p.m. Shrewsbury, Mass.

A water alarm from an IT (informational technology) service provider in Shrewsbury was received. Our Command Center operator notified building management of the issue and they quickly investigated. The day’s severe rainstorm had caused water to begin seeping into the building’s lower level. As part of the business’s security system, water sensors had been installed at the lowest area of the floor to guard against flooding. Building maintenance staff took corrective measures.
