BALTIMORE—CSAA presented its first Public Sector Award to Bill Hobgood, project manager, public safety team in the IT department for the City of Richmond, Va., for his work with the ASAP to PSAP program.

“Over the past several years, Bill has worked tirelessly to promote and implement ASAP, a program that increases the efficiency and reliability of emergency electronic signals from central station alarm companies to Public Service Answering Points (PSAPs),” said CSAA president Pamela J. Petrow, in a prepared statement. “Bill is the ideal recipient of this inaugural award—he has been an indefatigable advocate for the ASAP program, which benefits both the private and public sector.”

“I am deeply honored to receive CSAA’s Inaugural Public Sector Award,” Hobgood said in the prepared statement. “Having personally developed the first ASAP to computer-aided dispatch interface for York County, Va., and the city of Richmond, Va., that was launched in 2006 as a two-and-a-half year pilot, I realized from day one that the ASAP program would become the win-win that it has for public safety and the alarm industry with the primary beneficiary being the community that we serve.”

CSAA presented Hobgood with this award at this year’s ESX.
