Vector Security Donates Equipment to Protect Wilkes-Barre Church Following Break-In and Vandalism

WILKES-BARRE, Pa., July 1, 2021  – In support of Parsons Primitive Methodist Church, which was broken into and vandalized earlier in June, the Wilkes-Barre branch of Vector Security, Inc., the provider of intelligent mobile security and automation solutions to homes and businesses, donated security equipment, installation labor and monitoring to help protect the church against future crimes.

The church sustained about $9,000 in damages when vandals apparently broke in through a cellar door and proceeded to destroy and steal property inside.

“Our Wilkes-Barre office is just eight minutes away from this church and after watching the news footage, it really upset me that people would do this, especially to a church,” said Ed Price, a sales representative at the local branch. “I figured they were going to be burdened with cleaning costs and the cost to replace the soundboard that was stolen, and also have to worry about losing parishioners who might feel it’s an unsafe environment. Vector Security lives and breathes in this community -- our employees live and breathe in this community -- and when something like this happens, we really need to step up to the plate.”

That’s when Price and General Manager Jeff Loscig stepped in to donate $1,500 in equipment and services to the church.

“We have been touched by the outpouring of support,” said Pastor Andy Jerome. “Vector Security in addition to many other businesses and people within the community have really come together to help us recover and ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
