CSAA extends sincere condolences to the family of Chief Chris Vinson, who passed away unexpectedly on June 1. A great friend of the alarm industry, Chief Vinson was with the Highland Park, Texas, police department for more than 30 years, serving as chief since 2008. He was a strong advocate of the ASAP-to-PSAP program, speaking out in support of it at ISC West in April. We welcomed him to CSAA headquarters in February for meetings on the revision of Alarm Verification and Notification Standard, CS-V-01. Chief Vinson will be greatly missed by his community in Texas and by the larger public safety community to which he gave his time and talents so generously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
