Vector Security was selected, for a second time, as the recipient of the prestigious Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award. The award recognizes outstanding leadership and innovation in helping reduce unnecessary calls for service to public safety agencies. It was presented during ESX on June 18 in Nashville.

The PDQ Award, given annually by the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) and the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA), recognizes the security company that best demonstrates a proactive and cooperative effort to reduce unnecessary alarm dispatches. Vector Security previously won the award in 2006.

“Our industry has taken many important steps forward in implementing policies, technology and training to make alarm systems more effective and dependable,” said Pamela Petrow, Vector Security  president and CEO. “The partnership developed with law enforcement through our work with SIAC, FARA and our state alarm associations would not have been as effective were it not for the efforts of our organization and many others to curb unnecessary dispatches while maintaining and in many cases helping fund police response.”

Commented Stan Martin, SIAC executive director, “Vector Security’s impact on reducing dispatches is especially significant because they serve more than 270,000 homes and businesses in North America. Their 40-year record of success helps inspire others to reach these same benchmarks.”
