Security firm donates hi-tech surveillance kit to Salvation Army
A sophisticated surveillance system to help protect residents at a Salvation Army emergency housing centre has been donated by a security firm.
Universal Security Alliance Limited handed over cameras, monitors, panic buttons and other security equipment to the charity’s housing centre and promised to install them free of charge.
Mikkel Harris, one of the directors of USAL, also pledged to expand the security system to cover the centre’s planned extra rooms – also at no cost to the Salvation Army.
A spokeswoman for the Pembroke-based security firm said: “USAL prides itself in being a good corporate citizen and has continuously given back to the community over the years.
“The company has aided various causes, while ensuring its clients receive top level professional security services.”
The donation was made after Donna Outerbridge, the manager of the Salvation Army’s emergency housing complex in Marsh Lane, Pembroke, spoke to Mr Harris about vulnerable areas of the centre and the charity’s increased need for security.
Dr Outerbridge said: “The Salvation Army has been caring for the unsheltered since 1983 and on behalf of the organisation we sincerely appreciate the generous donation from USAL.
“We look forward to the complex’s enhanced security to ensure safety for our employees and residents.”
