Dischert Strives to Enhance Industry Policies, Procedures
BOCA RATON, Fla.—Before investing more than 20 years in the security industry, Larry Dischert worked as a management consultant, and one of his various projects was with ADT Security Services. Ten years later, Dischert is now ADT’s director of industry and regulatory liaison for the company and one of Security Sales & Integration‘s Editorial Advisory Board members.
Dischert is involved with the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) False Alarm Committee and says he has always been involved in policies and procedures for the industry. As with others, currently the issue of false alarms is a big topic on his agenda.
Hogan Professes Professionalism Among Dealers
MEMPHIS, Tenn.—For Cecil Hogan, president of Security Consultants Inc. in Memphis, Tenn., the most important concerns are training and industry involvement. To him, this equals a security professional who is “making enough money to have a life rather than spending your life making a living.”
After five years of building up his business, this Security Sales & Integration Editorial Advisory Board member has become an National Training Systems (NTS) instructor and has served two presidential terms for the Tennessee Burglar and Fire Alarm Association. He is also the president for the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA).
