Please welcome Tom Sweeney to the SIAC ranks. We’re proud to have him join our mission. SIAC is a stronger organization with his addition to our team.
Tom recently retired from the Glastonbury PD in Connecticut. He will primarily be working the Northeast part of the U.S. for us, so if you have issues in that part of the country, you may contact him directly by going through our Web site: http://www.siacinc.org/contact_us.aspx./
Tom was one of the original IACP/PSLC members and once was co-chair. He is well-respected within the chief ranks. He has a strong history of involvement and leadership within the police community and we look forward to having him on board to further grow our relationships with law enforcement. His career includes 47 years in criminal justice employment, with 41 years working in and for police departments.
He has published multiple stories in “Local Government Police Management” magazine. A graduate of Manhattan College, Sweeney got his Master’s Degree in Criminology at the University of California-Berkely, and served as a graduate faculty member at Golden Gate University.
A lifetime member of IACP and the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association, Tom was also a member of the Police Executive Research Forum (2000-2012) and Capital Region Chiefs of Police (1999-2012).
Interestingly, as SIAC worked to develop the first Chief’s video on alarm management – a controversial project – Tom made suggestions to help lend greater credibility, including a section on Verified Response. We’ve appreciated Tom’s reasoned voice throughout the years we’ve known him, and are confident his approach and knowledge will help the cause of better alarm management practices
