Our Mission


Through our law enforcement outreach we share the well-vetted best practices to include in an alarm ordinance and provide the reasoning behind each recommendation.  We also explain why alternate programs suggested by a handful of agencies are not beneficial to citizens or effective for reducing false alarms.

Network Liaison

Through our Alarm Management Committees in many states and our active participation with IACP, NSA, Major County Sheriffs’ and Major City Chiefs associations SIAC is well-connected with leadership and can effectively communicate issues and coordinate solutions related to alarm management.


Given our vast knowledge and twenty plus years of experience in the alarm management arena we are able to respond quickly and articulate strong arguments against unlawful or il-advised  practices or programs that may be proposed by local, state or national agencies. We have data and examples we share to facilitate the removal of these onerous provisions, while providing solutions that work.


Using our network of contacts with leadership in law enforcement built upon trust and experience we are able to quickly respond to requests for assistance. As experts on Alarm Management we can provide an industry perspective to media inquiries.
