Frisco, Texas (September 10, 2015) – The Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) has honored the Security Industry Alarm Coalition’s (SIAC) Glen Mowrey with its Annual Appreciation Award for his work in establishing the Florida Alarm Management Committee. Mowrey is a retired Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina, deputy police chief and serves as law enforcement liaison for SIAC.
“In 2005, Mowrey recommended and encouraged the FPCA to establish an Alarm Management Committee,” said Chief Frank Kitzerow, FPCA President. “Since establishing the committee its successes include developing a Model Alarm Ordinance, conducting alarm management seminars, working to have Enhanced Call Verification enacted as a state law, as well as working with police agencies in developing alarm management programs using the FPCA Model Ordinance.
“The success of the committee led to the establishing of FPCA Public-Private Partnership (3-Ps) Committee, made up of 36 members from public safety, SIAC, and the private sector,” said Chief Kitzerow. “The 3-Ps has several sub-committees including Alarm Management, Retail, Banking, Tourism and Hospitality, Theft of Electricity and Copper Wire, and Security Guard Services.
“SIAC and Glen have been true partners in helping law enforcement better protect and serve our citizens, keeping up with the fast paced changes in technology and providing proven best practices for alarm management,” said Chief Kitzerow. “The Florida committee is a model that is working in states and could be adopted nationwide.”
The FPCA is the third largest state police chiefs association in the nation and is composed of more than 900 of the state's top law enforcement executives. FPCA serves municipal police departments, airport police, college and university police, private business and security firms, as well as federal, state and county law enforcement agencies.
