An Open Letter of Support from Yuba City, California


To our readers:

 

Original letter to SIAC’s Ron Walters from Shirley Johnson of the Yuba City (CA) Police Department:

 

Ron,

 

As an attendee of the SAAC meeting on February 23rd, I was very impressed with the presentation.  The alarm industry and law enforcement is fortunate to have SIAC to assist them with various situations.  I’d like to take advantage of your expertise and have you review the attached proposed alarm ordinance for Yuba City.

 

Thank you for your assistance in reviewing this document.

 

Shirley Johnson

Above is an example of routine correspondence SIAC receives but most never see. This is the result of a presentation Ron Walters did at the Sacramento Alarm Association meeting, where police jurisdictions were in attendance.  Of course we conduct similar briefings where a police department hosts the meeting and invites other jurisdictions. Those are typically done by SIAC retired chiefs.
In these cases, we take the proposed ordinance attached, and SIAC reviews it to insure uniform definitions; see if all best practices are included; and check for onerous provisions and/or ambiguous language. We will actually change language to reflect our suggestions using MS Word review so they can accept or reject each recommendation and will include a summary email explaining the changes.  If an ordinance is old or requires a major rework, we supply our new short version marked up with the cities information so they can consider a nice clean start. Many times they prefer the later.

Please feel free to share this blog with others. We believe it is important to get this message out as far and wide as possible.

Again, thanks for everyone’s support!
