Sheriff/Private Security Partnership Industry Award

The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) and The Monitoring Association (TMA), invites entries for the industry-sponsored “Sheriff/Private Security Partnership” industry award.

“SIAC has a long history of successfully partnering with the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). As well as local sheriffs around the country,” says Stan Martin, SIAC executive director. “This award allows security industry representatives from around the country to recognize a local sheriff’s office. Additionally, their partnership with our industry and our shared goals of serving and protecting the public. 

“Part of our mission is to bring security industry companies to the table. So that mutually agreeable solutions for communities are achieved,” says Martin.

“SIAC and TMA want to recognize companies and their local sheriffs for successful programs in their communities.”  

Moreover, security industry members can nominate a sheriff by submitting the application. Additionally, providing a brief explanation of the collaborative effort. If selected, your sheriff and your company will receive recognition from NSA. As well as the press releases that accompany this award. 

The partnership award is an example of NSA pushing this same type of approach. Agreed-upon solutions with buy-in from all involved parties. Given the importance of adopting standards that make sense and are enforceable. When it comes to managing alarm systems locally, NSA has strongly encouraged security companies to consider applying for this award.
