Last Call to Enter False Alarm Reduction Award Program


The 2007 Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) award program is accepting entries through Jan. 15. The prestigious award is intended to promote and celebrate collaboration between police departments and installing and monitoring alarm dealers in reducing the number of false alarms and dispatches. Pittsburgh-based Vector Security captured the 2006 award (see May 2006 issue of Security Sales & Integration).

SSI is a co-sponsor of the PDQ Award, along with the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) and the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA).

Examples of police department and security company cooperation are being collected to help create best practices guidelines in the PDQ program, and dealers and integrators are invited to share their winning stories. The best overall collaboration will be honored with the North American PDQ Award for 2007.

The winning alarm company will be recognized in a hometown ceremony along with a local law enforcement representative and receive $1,000 to travel to Las Vegas for next year’s ISC West to receive their award at the 2007 SAMMY Awards. SSI will also honor the victorious company with an article in the magazine.
