Elite Interactive Solutions has compiled three years of data spanning from 2020 to 2022 that details criminal activity and outcomes at three of the company’s customer locations. The data confirms that Elite has been successful in preventing criminal behavior in 96% of non-violent incidents when trespassers were detected on customers’ properties without the need for police intervention. In over 1,400 documented security related events in this study, Elite’s Digital Guards™ solution resulted in one of three positive outcomes: the criminal behavior stopped or the police detained or arrested the subject(s) – with zero false alarms generated to law enforcement during the three-year survey time frame.
