FRISCO, Texas — Nominations are being accepted for the ninth annual Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award program presented by the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC), False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA), SECURITY SALES & INTEGRATION, Honeywell Security and Installation Quality (IQ) Certification program.
Established in 2005, the PDQ Award promotes partnerships in public safety by recognizing how a company works with local law enforcement to best manage their alarm systems and reduce false alarms. The PDQ Award helps the winners promote their companies in a positive manner by demonstrating their commitment to high quality alarm reduction programs and best practices.
Past PDQ Award winners include HS Technology, Custom Alarm, Broadview Security (formerly Brink’s Home Security), Atronic Alarm Systems, Alarm Detection Systems Inc. and Vector Security Systems (two-time winner).
“This is a great venue for companies to win an award that can be used in promotions to their customers,” says SIAC Executive Director Stan Martin. “Good alarm reduction programs ultimately benefit the customer by saving costs through reduced fines. We are looking for companies that exemplify an all out effort to reduce false alarms from implementing ECV to utilizing ANSI CP-01 compliant control panels, training customers and working closely with law enforcement.”
The winner will receive $1,000 for hotel and airfare to attend the 2014 Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Nashville, Tenn. Additionally, the award recipient will be featured in an issue of SSI.
Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2014.
