“John took a leadership role as Vice President of the Electronic Security Association and president of LOUD Security to encourage Georgia Gov. Brian P. Kemp to sign and the Georgia legislature to pass a a bill that bans counties and municipalities from fining alarm companies for false alarms generated by a customer,” said Stan Martin, SIAC Executive Director. “This groundbreaking legislation came in response to the decision by the city of Sandy Springs to fine alarm companies for false alarms.”
