Presented at ISC East, the honors recognize the company’s SIMTactics Emergency Crisis Simulation Training (Platinum) in the category of Best Risk, Crisis Management Prevention, and TSD Police Training (Gold) as Best Law Enforcement, Counter Terrorism, Crime Prevention Program for Federal/State/Local.

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and today in its Seventh Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness - Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.

SIMTactics is an interactive emergency simulation training program for law enforcement, as well as school security. The training involves electronic tabletop risk assessments to provide critical evaluations of organizations’ existing training plans for emergencies such as active shooters, natural disasters, and weather-related events, as well as other types of emergencies.

True Security Design also offers flexible law enforcement training options including live in-person and remote training, as well as on-demand video training that has trained thousands of officers to date. The on-demand service enables police agencies to train their entire staff for the cost of a single officer training. Designed to meet the tight scheduling demands of the profession, the on-demand service allows police officers the flexibility to train at any time. With a subscription-based model, this offering stretches scarce training dollars and provides training for the same cost to every officer, in any size agency.
