NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Newtown (Conn.) Police Chief Michael Kehoe, who served as a first responder during the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, will speak about the vital partnership between public safety and private security at the 2013 Electronic Security Expo (ESX) Industry IceBreaker Luncheon. The SECURITY SALES & INTEGRATION-sponsored event is planned for June 18 at noon.
“We’re extremely proud to welcome Chief Kehoe to ESX’s Industry IceBreaker Luncheon,” says ESX Chair George De Marco. “I look forward to hearing his thoughts on how the public and private safety sectors can work together to protect our most precious assets: our families — our children.”
Kehoe, who has been the Newtown Conn. Police Chief since 2001, is chairman of the Statewide Narcotics Task Force Policy Board, a member of the Connecticut Coalition for Drug Endangered Children, and the board co-chair of the Newtown Prevention Council. He has also served as the president of the Fairfield County’s Chiefs of Police Association and served on the board of directors of the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association as vice president.
“I’m glad to participate in the Industry IceBreaker Luncheon at ESX this June,” says Chief Kehoe. “It’s important that we in the public and private safety sectors continue to find new ways to work together to help secure and protect our communities.”
The luncheon will also host the presentation of the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) William N. Moody Award, as well as the 2012 Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award, which recognizes the security company that best demonstrates a proactive and cooperative effort to reduce unnecessary alarm dispatches.
Additionally, the Vivint-sponsored ESA Youth Scholarship Award will be presented at the event.
