MPA monitors alarms

Cambodian security firm MPA International Ltd has introduced an innovative service

designed to monitor up to 10,000 separate alarms and reduce response times to minutes.

According to the statement released July 25, The Central Alarm Monitoring Station

will allow security agents to monitor thousands of alarms throughout Phnom Penh,

Siem Reap, Battambang and Sihanoukville. When an alarm goes of it will automatically

contact MPA's head office and they will react with the appropriate response team.

"It will allow us to respond to any incident, whether it is a security threat

or fire. Under our license, police from the Ministry of Interior provide armed police

response on standby at our response center. Police will accompany our security agents

when responding to alarm calls 24/7. We feel this service is badly needed in Phnom

Penh, given its high level of criminal activity and high population density,"

said Christian Berger, managing director of MPA.
