Avigilon improves safety with charitable donation during Domestic Violence Awareness Month

High-definition surveillance system allows emergency shelter to protect residents

Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced its donation of a full HD surveillance system to Harbor House of Central Florida, an emergency shelter and community organization for women, men, children and pets who are victims of domestic abuse.

Harbor House seeks to eliminate domestic violence by providing safety, shelter, counseling, education, advocacy and justice. The Avigilon installation will take place in October coinciding with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time set aside to recognize the strength of survivors through events and community gatherings across the nation.

“Given that many of our residents are escaping dangerous situations, we are very grateful to receive this donation from Avigilon,” said Carol Wick, CEO at Harbor House. “The HD surveillance system will vastly improve our security capabilities and increase the feelings of safety and sanctuary at Harbor House. Avigilon’s program is truly making an impact on neighborhoods and organizations in need.”

Since the 1970s, Harbor House has been highly regarded as one of the most comprehensive domestic abuse programs in the state of Florida. The organization has five main programs to support its mission including an emergency shelter, children’s services, community outreach, legal advocacy services, and community and professional education. Due to the nature of its programs and the survivors’ need for protection, Harbor House has made security a priority and will benefit from the safety improvement that the installation will ensure.

“Harbor House is a fully supportive organization that offers a wide range of programs to help improve the lives of those in need,” said Alexander Fernandes, president and CEO at Avigilon.

“Their survivors are escaping high-risk situations and we look forward to providing an improved level of protection for the Harbor House property and its residents with this donation.”

The Harbor House donation was made through Give Back, Avigilon’s new corporate social responsibility program dedicated to assisting charities safeguard people, property or the environment. As part of this initiative, Avigilon will continue to provide surveillance systems to charitable organizations that demonstrate financial need and offer protection. Commercial Systems Group (CSG), a full line systems contractor offering design, installation and service for all commercial systems, provided further support for the donation with additional products and installation services. Donations through the Give Back program are tailored to the specific needs of the organization and the program is available in any country in which Avigilon has an office.
