Church Mutual Insurance Company (Merrill, Wisc.), an insurer focused on faith-based organizations and other compatible markets, has added Roost’s (Sunnyvale, Calif.) Armed Intruder Service to its existing Protection360 Commercial Property Telematics Service. Church Mutual is Roost’s launch partner for the new service.

Richard Poirier, President and CEO, Church Mutual.

The Armed Intruder Service is designed to work seamlessly with the Roost Protection360 Service that delivers 24/7 real-time emergency alerts and interactive verifications for emergency situations including water leak, freezing pipe conditions, high temperature and power outages. When activated, the new Armed Intruder Service notifies local law enforcement of an armed intruder situation within seconds through a live operator central monitoring partner.

“We are very excited to be working with Roost to deliver another innovative solution for our customers,” comments Rich Poirier, president and CEO, Church Mutual. “It’s very unfortunate people must be prepared for the real possibility of an armed intruder situation. We believe this new solution is an additional tool to assist in protecting the people they serve.”

Component of Comprehensive Safety and Security Plan

“We are thrilled to be working with our partner, Church Mutual, to debut the new Armed Intruder Service,” said Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “As a component of an overall comprehensive safety and security plan, the Roost Armed Intruder Service can help to provide a greater peace of mind for each property and reinforces a proactive prevention approach to help deter these situations.”
