Last week, Security Industry Specialists was honored as a key sponsor for the LAPD SWAT 50th Anniversary Dinner and Golf Classic. SIS employees, clients, and guests took part in the Los Angeles tournament and dinner.
“This event reminds us that we are all part of something bigger than ourselves,” SIS CEO John Spesak said. “We feel connected to each other: the extraordinary individuals that risk their lives every day, the city, and the entire LAPD organization. I am humbled to be included in this event year after year, and proud to be able to contribute to the tireless efforts of D-Team and its goals.”
The LAPD SWAT team, founded in 1967, was the first tactical team in American law enforcement history, setting a precedent for SWAT teams across the world. The event benefited the Los Angeles Police Foundation, a nonprofit that provides resources and support to the LAPD and its communities.
Many of the LAPD members in attendance are also employed by SIS as off-duty officers for client events.
“I am truly blessed to refer to many of these officers, if not all of those present, as my family,” Spesak said in a statement. “On behalf of SIS, I want to personally thank you for all that you each do every single day to make this city a model that other cities emulate. It is your service that ultimately ensures that everyone in this great city is safe, day in and day out, while risking your life to do so.”
