FRISCO, Texas — Digital Monitoring Products (DMP), a leading supplier to the electronic security industry, has doubled its support for the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) with a $20,000 contribution.
“Our continued support and larger investment in SIAC is based on its strong ties to the law enforcement community, and its ability to speak for our industry to key decision makers concerning municipal and state regulations of our industry,” says Rick Britton, DMP CEO. “SIAC has successfully promoted a model alarm ordinance that dramatically reduces false alarms while maintaining police response.”
SIAC Executive Director Stan Martin explains consolidation throughout the security industry has progressively challenged the organization to fund its operations.
“Requests for our support by law enforcement agencies continues to increase. We recently received support for the model ordinance from the National Sheriffs’ Association and the National Association of Chiefs of Police,” Martin says.
Today, SIAC has helped establish 15 state alarm management committees in association with state associations of chiefs of police. SIAC continues to monitor local and state-wide news for mentions of false alarms and new alarm ordinances, and proactively reach out to communities to promote the model ordinance.
“SIAC does not sell products or services, we have no membership dues. We are a free resource to law enforcement as we strive to keep good and fair ordinances in place, maintain relationships with law enforcement leadership and work to eliminate onerous provisions that can be costly to dealers,” Martin continues.
Given the SIAC’s funding challenges, Britton is calling on industry stakeholders to consider providing financial backing.
“Our entire industry benefits from SIAC’s work so it is also vital that as many companies as possible from every sector of the industry provide financial support,” Britton says. “SIAC’s strong relationship with law enforcement will be vital as our industry grows and technology changes. Everyone needs to do their part.”
