Police detained a trespasser at a Puget Sound area school after Sonitrol Pacific detected him inside the building January 22.
Monitoring Operator Cindy Burr received an alert from the school around 7:30 a.m. Security sensors tracked activity from a door and down a hallway of the school. Burr called the school’s security guard to investigate.
As the guard searched the school, Burr kept him updated on the detected activity. Soon the guard spotted a young man in the school’s courtyard and apprehended him. Tacoma Police were called.
The police investigation found the man was mentally unstable and looking for his counselor. No damage was done to the school and nothing was taken.
