Security chief: Alarm did go off at Lynks

Providence Electronic Solutions has denied all claims that their alarm system did not go off during a burglary of a business place in the wee hours of August 8.{{more}}

In the August 9 edition of SEARCHLIGHT, it was reported that the mobile telephone outlet on Halifax Street, Lynks, had been burglarized.

In that article, SEARCHLIGHT reported that an employee had said that the alarm system did not go off and that it was the first time that the store had been burglarized.

However, CEO of Providence Electronic Solutions Francis Providence insists that his state-of -the-art alarms did go off.

“The alarm system did go off and my operator was very good in response,” Providence said when he visited SEARCHLIGHT, yesterday.

During the interview, the CEO called one of his employees, who confirmed that their receivers alarmed at 12:33 a.m. on August 8, 2013, signalling the break in of the store.

“The alarm went off and the response guy got there. My operator dispatched the response and called the police,” he said.

“The police and my response guy got there and saw that the ceiling was taken down”.

Providence also indicated that he had also made a call to the management of the store to inform them of the break-in.

Furthermore, the CEO said that his company has been the security providers for Lynks over the past two years and that it was the second time that their alarm had gone off.

“It’s the first time they got into the building,” he said, referring to the most recent incident.

Providence Electronic Solutions has been operating in St Vincent and the Grenadines for almost six years and promises state-of-the-art alarm systems to their clients. (BK)
