The Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) last month honored the Security Industry Alarm Coalition’s (SIAC) Glen Mowrey with its Annual Appreciation Award for his work in establishing the Florida Alarm Management Committee. Glen serves as law enforcement liaison for SIAC, and is a retired Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina, deputy police chief. Glen has been helping SIAC in this endeavor for well over 10 years, and we’re proud to see him honored in this way, and his efforts rewarded publicly.
FPCA President, Chief Frank Kitzerow, had this to say about Glen and his work: “In 2005, Mowrey recommended and encouraged the FPCA to establish an Alarm Management Committee. Since establishing the committee, its successes include developing a Model Alarm Ordinance, conducting alarm management seminars, working to have Enhanced Call Verification enacted as a state law, as well as working with police agencies in developing alarm management programs using the FPCA Model Ordinance.”
Kitzerow continued: “The success of the committee led to the establishing of FPCA Public-Private Partnership (3-Ps) Committee, made up of 36 members from public safety, SIAC, and the private sector. The 3-Ps has several subcommittees including Alarm Management, Retail, Banking, Tourism and Hospitality, Theft of Electricity and Copper Wire, and Security Guard Services.”
He added: “SIAC and Glen have been true partners in helping law enforcement better protect and serve our citizens, keeping up with the fast-paced changes in technology, and providing proven best practices for alarm management. The Florida committee is a model that works in states and could be adopted nationwide.”
SIAC is able to send Glen to Florida and many other states only because of donations from our contributors. We cannot continue this work without you. Please click here to consider a donation: http://www.siacinc.org/donate.aspx.
