Over the years, one of our most important outreach efforts continues to be meeting with law enforcement at their annual meetings. We talk face-to-face with officials, attend meetings that are crucial to the security industry, and sponsor specific events to help gain greater visibility on issues of importance to our industry.
Just last month, for example, SIAC sponsored the Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA) luncheon in Mackinac Island, Michigan. MCSA is represented through elected sheriffs representing counties or parishes with a population of 500,000 or more.
MCSA works to promote a greater understanding of law enforcement strategies to address future problems and identify law enforcement challenges facing the members of our organization. The organization also aggressively pursues the development of innovative education along with prevention and enforcement strategies and programs.
Because SIAC’s mission to improve alarm management practices is tightly connected to sheriff departments, our active participation helps us foster greater understanding of the issues faced by the electronic security industry. It’s only because of our contributors that we are able to keep up this important work. Please click here — http://www.siacinc.org/donate.aspx — to consider a SIAC donation.
At the MCSA event, we were able to connect with many officials, hand out literature, hold one-on-one conversations and share SIAC materials with all attendees. We’re proud to represent the electronic security industry at these association meetings to build bridges, foster good relationships and share positive steps companies are taking to improve how alarms are managed.
