FORT WORTH, Texas — Amherst Alarm was awarded the 11th annual Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award for its ongoing efforts to reduce false alarm dispatches during a special ceremony today at the Electronic Security Expo.

The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC), False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA) and Security Sales & Integration established the PDQ award program in 2005.

Also endorsed by the Installation Quality (IQ) program, the PDQ award program spotlights alarm installing and monitoring businesses for creating best practices that help prevent false alarm dispatches.

Amherst Alarm received the award during the Public Safety Luncheon. Engineered Protection Systems (EPS) was the PDQ Award runner-up for the second year in a row.

An in-depth look at the company’s award-winning practices will be featured in the October issue of SSI.

Other previous winners include, Broadview Security, Atronic Alarms, Alarm Detection Systems Inc., Brink’s Home Security, Custom Alarm, HS Technology, Vector Security (two-time winner), Monitronics and Habitec Security.
