IN THE NEWS ~ September 30th, 2013
On June 18th at the Electronic Security EXPO (ESX) Icebreaker Luncheon in Nashville, NMC’s very own Sharon Elder, Vice President of Sales, was honored by The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) with the 2013 William N. Moody Award. Established in 2004, this prestigious award recognizes alarm industry leaders who take the lead to implement ordinances that incorporate the “best practices” of alarm management which allows law enforcement more efficient use of their resources to improve public safety.
Elder is known by law enforcement agencies in Southern California as the “go to” person to address alarm issues, and has successfully worked with officials in many southern California communities. In 2011, she proactively sought out and met with police executives and elected officials in Anaheim, Calif., in response to their decision to stop responding to alarms. Meeting with the leaders and using SIAC guidelines, Elder provided them with a better solution for the community by helping them fine tune and work their ordinance through the legislative process. Recently, she worked with two other California communities – Signal Hill and Whittier – to pass and implement similar ordinances.
“Having Sharon in Southern California is like having a SIAC employee or ambassador on the ground,” said Stan Martin, executive director of SIAC. “She does a terrific job for us and the industry.”
