CSAA Remembers Chief Chris Vinson of Highland Park, TX

VinsonCSAA 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.

Law Enforcement Support for ASAP-to-PSAP

At ISC West in April, a panel of law enforcement officers took the stage to discuss “Verified Alarms and Priority Response” presented by the Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR). A big part of the conversation was ASAP-to-PSAP. Check out the video to hear Chief Chris Vinson of Highland Park, TX, Chair of the Texas Police Chiefs Alarm Committee, and Commander Scott Edson of Los Angeles weigh in on the ASAP program and its benefits.
