ASIS Establishes Matthew Simeone Award for Public-Private Partnership Excellence
The ASIS International (ASIS) Law Enforcement Liaison Council (LELC) has established the Matthew Simeone ASIS Award for Public-Private Partnership Excellence. Administered by the ASIS Foundation, the award recognizes outstanding achievement by a private organization and a law enforcement agency in the advocacy, development, implementation, and practice of public-private cooperation for public safety. The application deadline for the first award, which will be presented at an ASIS 2011 luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011 in Orlando, Fl., is May 20, 2011. Two winners—one representative from the private organization and one representative from the law enforcement agency—will receive free transportation and hotel expenses.
