This year’s closing keynote luncheon will feature a Secret Service agent and director of security for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway discuss real-world security solutions and common-sense safeguards.

INDIANAPOLIS — Just a little over a week after the checkered flag is waved at the Indy 500, the director of security for Indianapolis Motor Speedway events will speak as part of a panel at the Closing Keynote Luncheon, sponsored by Security Sales and Integration, at ESX here on June 6.

Three panelists will discuss ways to implement better strategies that help reduce violent crimes against employees, students, visitors and customers. ESX says it chose panelists from diverse backgrounds who have handled security issues with unique requirements in many locations.

Ted Fries, director of safety & security for Hulman Motorsports, is responsible for oversight of security and safety at Indianapolis Motor Speedway events. Fries will speak from his expertise as a 29-year veteran of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and overseer of security for one of the biggest racing events in the world.

Mindy Pretzman, assistant to the special agent in charge of the United States Secret Service, will take the stage to bring her perspective as a command and control supervisor over the White House Complex. Her previous accomplishments include leading the transition of security operations between administrations and creating security platforms for First Lady Melania Trump.

Louis Dekmar, LaGrange Police Department Chief of Police, will bring his insight as a 41-year veteran of law enforcement in Georgia. Dekmar has served as Chief of Police for more than 26 years, and is Past-President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police and Past President and Chair of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.
