John Loud, president of LOUD Security Systems, will receive the William N. Moody Award at the 2022 Electronic Security EXPO Public Safety and Networking Luncheon in Fort Worth, Texas. Created in 2004 by the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC), the Moody Award is given annually to an individual who demonstrates a passion for advancing positive alarm management and best industry practices.

“John’s leadership roles in ESA and the Georgia Electronic Life Safety & Systems Association (GELSSA) demonstrate a career-long commitment to helping our industry protect life and property through cooperation with public officials and public safety organizations,” said Stan Martin SIAC executive director. “The successful passage of the Georgia legislation demonstrates his commitment and effectiveness in these endeavors.”

“While I am delighted at this recognition, it is important to note that this was a group effort by dozens of committed individuals in our industry and the state legislature who helped make sure that common sense prevailed in Georgia,” Loud said. “Our industry needs to continue to support our state and local alarm associations as well as SIAC so that we are ready to work with any community that wishes to reduce unnecessary dispatches with a proven model and experts ready to assist.”
