SIAC, TMA Co-Sponsoring Sheriff/Private Security Partnership Award


SIAC, along with The Monitoring Association (TMA), is sponsoring the National Sheriff’s Association (NSA) “Sheriff/Private Security Partnership Award.” NSA announced its various annual awards recently on its web site, which you can access here.

The partnership between security companies the sheriff’s offices is one that SIAC has highly encouraged over the years. As part of our mission, we not only work closely with many law enforcement agencies, but also bring security industry companies to the table so that mutually agreeable solutions for communities are achieved.


If you are partnering with a Sheriff’s Agency in any way that supports them or the community, you need to seize this opportunity to nominate the agency for this award by submitting the application and providing a brief explanation of the collaborative effort. If selected, your Sheriff AND your company will receive recognition by NSA and press releases that accompany this award

The partnership award is an example of NSA pushing this same type of approach – agreed-upon solutions with buy-in from all involved parties. Given the importance of adopting standards that make sense and are enforceable when it comes to managing alarm systems locally, we strongly encourage security companies to consider applying for this award.

The award recognizes the partnership between a private security company and a sheriff’s office. Nominations are now being accepted, and must be postmarked to NSA by December 16, 2022.  Download an award packet .
