August 28th, 2014, Los Angeles, CA – Elite ISI announces the formation of the Remote Guarding Law Enforcement Advisory Board. The founding members are Robert Parker, Keith Bushey, and Tom Stone. They were chosen based upon their extreme interest in, and understanding of the value of Remote Guarding to law enforcement. They bring a depth of experience, impressive careers, and leadership in law enforcement to the board. The role of the Board is educating and training local, regional and national law enforcement agencies in the uses and benefits of remote guarding. Future activities will include developing, instituting assessments and certification for compliance with Remote Guarding standards.
Elite currently partners with Police and Sheriff’s departments throughout the nation to dramatically improve the security of the company’s client properties. Board members understand and want to promote how Remote Guarding provides Law Enforcement with dramatic benefits without having to bear any of the cost. Elite’s unique ability to prevent crime, save law enforcement resources, enhance officer safety and generally improve police results resulted in the company being selected by FBI-LEEDA as the only monitoring and security company to educate and train its 6000 members on the benefits and uses of Remote Guarding. FBI-LEEDA is the nation’s leading law enforcement training association.
Robert Parker Sr. served the Miami-Dade Police Department for 33 years before retiring in 2009, after becoming the department’s Director in 2004. As Director of the Miami-Dade Police Department, he oversaw the 8th largest police department in the nation, with 4,700 personnel, a budget of $548 million, and the 2.4 million residents and visitors of Florida’s Miami-Dade County.
Keith Bushey, a 44-year veteran of law enforcement and the military, recently retired as Law Enforcement Liaison to Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley. He also served as Commander in the Los Angeles Police Department, a Deputy Chief in the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, and as a Colonel in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. He currently travels nationwide to train law enforcement professionals across the nation as a long time, senior lecturer for FBI-LEEDA.
Tom Stone substantially adds to the Board his extensive experience in local, regional and national law enforcement. For over 20 years he served in a number of Chief of Police, and Public Safety Director roles. As curriculum developer and past President of FBI-LEEDA (FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association), Tom has overseen the training of the association’s 6,000+ law enforcement and public safety members. He was named Executive Director Emeritus upon his retirement in 2013.
“We are extremely proud to have such esteemed Law Enforcement Advisory Board Members,” says Aria Kozak, President and CEO of Elite ISI. “Each one brings considerable expertise, visibility, and passion to the Board. Their ability to extend Remote Guarding’s reach to all levels of law enforcement will also add to Elite’s ability to protect our clients properties, prevent crime, and save lives.”
