Who's donating to SIAC and how much are they donating?


There's lots of debate currently about the effects of the Supreme Court decision to allow businesses to make anonymous donations to political campaigns. The question: Is transparency good or not?

In the security industry, one advocacy group obviously believes it's important to let everyon know who's supporting its  (SIAC's) efforts. SIAC encourages donors to display its logos on their marketing material and web sites. They are  letting everyone know who's giving and how much.

The Security Industry Alarm Coalition's mission is to help reducing false alarms and establishing relationships between law enforcment and the alarm industry.
