CSC Sponsor Spotlight: Napco

Check out Napco’s approach to access control, intrusion and fire alarm system integration.

At Campus Safety Conference Texas on June 12, Napco Security Technologies exhibited its latest access control, wireless access, intrusion detection and fire detection solutions.

In this interview with Campus Safety magazine, Napco Vice President of School and Campus Security Byron Thurmond describes the benefits of his company’s approach to security system integration. Because Napco manufactures its own access control, wireless access, intrusion detection and fire detection solutions, they all integrate with each other.

Here is a sneak peek at one of our keynote speakers at the Campus Safety Conference East:

Michael Beckman

Deputy Chief – Long Beach Police Department

Anguished by his son Stephen’s mental illness and suicide, Deputy Chief Beckman relates a powerful story of Stephen’s life, death, and the profound personal and professional takeaways that resulted from his passing. The lessons learned validate the premise that in today’s complicated and dynamic world, there is a fundamental need for compassionate, empathetic, and communicative law enforcement professionals to best serve their communities, their schools, their colleagues and families, and their organizations. This highly personal presentation has been developed to derive triumphs from tragedy and to enlighten, inspire, and impart practical advice and ideas to today’s peace officers, law enforcement executives and supervisors, public safety stakeholders, medical and mental health professionals, and public service providers so that they may better help others in crisis.
