Crime Prevention Security Systems has expanded its coverage area to northeast Florida with its acquisition of Scott Alarm Inc., based in Jacksonville, Fla.

Scott Alarm has focused on sales, installation and customer service of alarm systems and home technology for homes and businesses. With this acquisition, Crime Prevention will take over the sales, installation and operations of Scott Alarm. In addition to offering the same security and home technologies that Scott Alarm offers to its customers, Crime Prevention will also monitor their customers with their own live-redundant central monitoring facilities.

“When we started our company 40 years ago, we couldn’t have imagined getting a phone call from Bruce Scott, an icon in the security industry,” said John Pastore, owner of Crime Prevention. “Over the years, we’ve become great friends with Bruce, and when he called us with this opportunity, it was a dream come true.”

 Existing Scott Alarm customers will not experience any change of service or protection. They will continue to receive the security monitoring and technical support they have enjoyed for years, according to the new owner. Crime Prevention is contacting Scott Alarm customers to notify them of the change and reassure them of the continued high level of service they can expect.

“I’ve worked with alarm dealers from across the country, and I can’t think of a better team and a better family to trust my company, my customers and my friends with,” said Bruce Scott. “I know that Johnny, Randi, and everyone at CPSS will build on the success I’ve had with Scott Alarm, and provide the same level of quality and life safety that I’ve provided my customers since I started in this industry. I couldn’t be happier.”
