The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Doug Haines of Haines Security Solutions its 2016 Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year for his significant contributions to the security industry.
With this award, SIA recognizes Haines for his volunteer efforts on behalf of SIA, most notably his service as an Adjunct Professor at Mercer Community College in New Jersey, where he assisted in the development of the Associate of Applied Science in Security Systems Technology Degree Program and taught a prerequisite course on security systems integration.
SIA Chairman Denis Hébert will present the 2016 Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year Award to Haines at The Advance, SIA's annual membership meeting, scheduled to occur on Tuesday, April 4, 2016, during ISC West.
“Thanks to SIA, I’ve had an opportunity to work directly with the next generation of security professionals,” said Haines. “The SIA degree program at Mercer College is a unique program designed to provide formal education to security technicians. It has been a pleasure to apply my own skills and background to the challenge of guiding the program and preparing students for careers in the security industry. I’m honored to be recognized, and I look forward to working further with SIA on this program and others.”
“Doug Haines generously volunteered his time and expertise to the Associate of Applied Science in Security Systems Technology Degree Program, assisting SIA with this promising program that prepares tomorrow’s security industry employees,” said Hébert. “We owe him a great debt of gratitude, and I am pleased to present him with the 2016 Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year Award.”
