Bob Pence Served 30 Years with FBI

Frisco, Texas (November 17, 2015) – The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) has added another law enforcement veteran to its team. SIAC represents one voice for the electronic security industry on alarm management issues working directly with law enforcement leaders throughout the United States and Canada on alarm management issues.

Bob Pence is joining SIAC after a 30-year career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in executive and supervisory positions. He retired as Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Rocky Mountain state with divisional headquarters in Denver. He has also served in the private sector as an advisor and consultant for companies involved in public safety products and services.  

“Bob brings decades of experience and national law enforcement contacts to the SIAC team,” said Stan Martin, SIAC Executive Director. “His law enforcement expertise, experience as a law enforcement executive as well as his knowledge of our industry will be a force multiplier for the SIAC team.”

“SIAC is an organization that has helped law enforcement embrace new technology while respecting its sometimes limited resources,” said Pence. “The dialog between the electronic security industry and law enforcement is invaluable to all parties protecting and serving the public.”

“The other retired law enforcement members on the SIAC team have been a tremendous asset in helping us communicate within the law enforcement community, better understand their issues and strategies, and develop win-win solutions to alarm management issues,” said Martin.

In addition to Pence, retired chiefs Glen Mowrey, Tom Sweeney, Steve Keefer and Chuck Brobeck are at the forefront of SIAC’s successful efforts to reduce alarm dispatches, through implementation of the Model Ordinance.
