LAS VEGAS - More than 100 participants turned out for the 2004 Alarm Industry Research and Education Foundation/National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association golf tournament to benefit future AIREF industry research projects.

The event was held at Revere Golf Club just outside of Las Vegas, prior to the start of ISC West. As of press time, the final tally of proceeds from the golf tournament was not available.

Following the afternoon golf tournament, more than 150 industry professionals turned out for the evening portion of the event where the Morris F. Weinstock and Sara E. Jackson awards were presented.

NBFAA Executive Director Merlin Guilbeau thanked those who participated in the day’s activities event, as well as the sponsors who made both possible.

“The sincere dedication of our tournament chairs Jamie Orvis and Bart Didden, the NBFAA staff and our sponsors enabled us to present an extraordinarily successful event,” said Guilbeau. “The money we raised and the great fun we had left a lot of people really looking forward to next year’s tournament.”

The money raised by the events will help AIREF complete studies that include an executive law enforcement guide to alarm response management. AIREF will work in conjunction with the Police Executive Research Forum to conduct the research.
