"The Duffy Award is the highest recognition which an NCISS member may achieve.  It is named in the honor of John J. Duffy, NCISS’s first President, who, along with his wife Eleanor,  founded Per Mar Security in Davenport,  Iowa.   John Duffy was the primary spark plug getting NCISS started in 1975 and the Duffy family has continued the tradition by providing unequivocal support for the Council.  Click here to read more...

Safety News

A recent study released in the state of Oregon placed California as the most expensive state in the nation for workers' compensation premiums.  The fact is, we cannot talk enough about safety.  Injury claims do occur, and once you suffer the increased premiums due to that injury, you will understand why there is never enough attention paid to safety.

While the CA Department of Industrial Relations may not agree with the report, the cost of workers' compensation insurance in California is increasing.  And the difference between number one CA and number 2 Connecticut is significant.  Click here to read more...

CALI District Updates

Los Angeles:

Thank you CALI members for the opportunity to represent you as Los Angeles District Director for 2014-2015 year.

As Los Angeles District Director, 2014/2015, I hope to pump up the District membership and continue to provide outstanding speakers, venues and menus.

San Luis Obispo County Clerk’s Office

It is no secret many complaints have been lodged surrounding the activities of the San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Clerk’s office. It is also no secret that Riley Parker has done his best to get to the bottom of why it was taking so long to get criminal records or why the fees for obtaining criminal information increased.

We have done our due diligence. As a result, Riley, CALI’s legislative advocate Jerry Desmond Jr. and I participated in meetings in Sacramento with Senator Bill Monning’s staff and with a representative of California’s Judicial Council. Senator Monning, of course, represents San Luis Obispo County.  Click here to read more...
