SIAC recently shared information with the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) on the value of sound alarm management practices. While attending the CPCA Annual Conference for the first time, SIAC’s Steve Keefer met with chiefs to promote the model alarm ordinance, alarm management committee concept and garner support for implementing ASAP (Automated Secure Alarm Protocol) to PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) solutions.
Steve was able to meet with several key chiefs during the February 7-10 sessions in Sacramento. He solidified relations and helped move SIAC significantly towards accomplishing our goals in California this year.
In addition, SIAC was able to share information to interested sworn command staff about CAA’s Scholarship Program. SIAC’s sponsorship of the California Police Chiefs Association continues to provide excellent opportunities to speak with agency executives about their alarm ordinance; strategies on reducing false alarms; and the benefits of implementing ASAP to PSAP.
SIAC’s sponsoring of California Chiefs Association was possible due to the generous donations from all California Alarm Association area chapters. We continue to make great strides in our relationship with California Chiefs Association and the hundreds of chiefs that cover the state.
