The ASIS New York City Chapter announced this week that MSA Security CEO Patrick Timlin will receive its 2013 Person of the Year award.
According to a statement, Timlin, who returned to MSA Security last year after accepting an appointment by NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly to serve as the department’s deputy commissioner of operations, will be honored at the NYC Chapter Awards Luncheon on May 9 during the 23rd NYC Security Conference & Expo.
During his two-year tenure as NYPD deputy commissioner of operations, Timlin created and/or implemented a variety of successful initiatives, crime reduction strategies, administrative processes, and operational efficiencies. Timlin has spent the majority of his career in public service, having worked for the NYPD for 22 years (1980-2002) in the Bronx and Queens.
“Pat has demonstrated his love for public service. From working up to the uniformed rank of assistant chief and borough commander to serving in a key position at NSA, and then returning to the department and to serve as deputy commissioner of operations,” said George Anderson, chair, ASIS New York City chapter. “He has now taken the skills and abilities he honed in the NYPD and applied them to his private sector role with great success. It is an honor to recognize his commitment to service and his career achievements.”
