Maria Malice Receives SIAC's 2012 William Moody Award
Frisco, Texas (June 5, 2012) - Maria Malice has been honored for her dedication, service, and contribution to the industry and the customers it protects with SIAC's 2012 William N. Moody Award. She will receive the award on June 26, 2012 at the ESX Electronic Security EXPO Icebreaker Luncheon in Nashville.
Maria Malice, Vice President of Special Projects at COPS Monitoring in Scottsdale, Arizona is also the President of the Arizona Alarm Association where she successfully battled some of the most serious issues the alarm industry has faced in recent years. Maria worked tirelessly in Avondale, Arizona to reverse the city's plan to charge alarm companies for false alarms. Despite organization opposition from several local alarm dealers, she led a successful effort working with the Tucson Police to update the city's alarm ordinance. She also helped overcome opposition and win passage of a state licensing law for alarm dealers allowing them to operate with one state-wide license.
"No one has faced more challenges in a single year than Maria Malice," said Jon Sargent, ADT Industry/Law Enforcement Liaison. "Opponents constantly tried to undermine her efforts on behalf of the Arizona Alarm Association," said Sargent. "Maria rallied the troops, fought back with facts and traveled to numerous meetings to help elected officials understand the issues."
