For the first time, SIAC will be a sponsor (Bronze) at the Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA) Winter Meeting, January 21-22 in Washington, D.C. We’re proud to be able to participate with more members of the law enforcement community.
Over the years, we have built and sustained strong working relationships with the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and State Association of Chiefs of Police (SACOP). Our ability to work closely with these associations helps us refine new ordinances that meet the needs of law enforcement, protect public safety and reflect best practices from the security industry. We believe these relationships are tremendously important to SIAC’s mission.
MCSA’s membership represents counties with populations of 500,000 or more. These are the larger areas outside areas serviced by city police departments. They are on the edge of many security issues facing our industry, and we’re looking forward to hearing their challenges and how SIAC can help provide solutions.
A main focus for MCSA is legislative issues, along with education and enforcement strategies. Much of the security industry’s work on alarm ordinances involves local and state legislation and ordinances, education and enforcement strategies. This provides an excellent forum for SIAC to contribute information that advances the dialogue. We’re looking forward to it. We hope it’s the first step in strong relationship.
