BETHLEHEM, Pa.— Pennsylvanian counties Lehigh, Northampton and Berks are working together with Altronics Security Systems to start the MVP—Maximum Victim Protection—program to providing security systems to victims of domestic violence.

Altronics, a residential security company based here, will donate the $300 to $500 systems and also waive the $40 monthly monitoring fee, said Bob Heimbecker, company general manager, according to a report in the in the Reading Eagle report.

The systems will include panic button fobs for family members as well, according to a Lehigh Valley Live report. The fobs will send signals directly to Altronics’ central station.

"They're providing a very needed service to our most vulnerable victims," Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin told Lehigh Valley Live.
