Copper Thieves Strike Again in Atlanta Area

May 14th, 2013

The copper thieves are at it again–striking this time at a church in Jonesboro (near Atlanta).  It always amazes me how often churches are the victims of crime but they seem to be easy targets.  In this case, copper wiring and copper pipes were ripped from the walls of this church.  Here is the link to the full article about the theft:

A theft like this is not only expensive but it is very disruptive because the removal of copper wiring and pipes leaves the building unusable until the repair work can be completed.

There is a better way.  Verified video security can provide notification of crimes in progress.  A security system with video verification sends video clips of the crime in progress to a monitoring center where an operator can provide more details about the crime to the police department.  With a crime in progress, the police will likely respond much more quickly before further damage can be done.
