Detective Chris Peer was the recipient of the Crowe-McGrory Award from the Delaware Chapter of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) during a luncheon on Thursday, November 20th. The award was given in recognition of Peer’s performance and dedicated commitment to law enforcement and to the citizens of the City of Dover and State of Delaware. According to the ASIS International website, the organization is the preeminent organization for security professionals, with more than 38,000 members worldwide. Founded in 1955, ASIS is dedicated to increasing the effectiveness and productivity of security professionals by developing educational programs and materials that address broad security interests, such as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, as well as specific security topics. ASIS also advocates the role and value of the security management profession to business, the media, government entities, and the public. The Delaware Chapter of ASIS International was founded in 1974. The Chapter membership is comprised of many security professionals within the Delaware region representing private, public, educational and law enforcement institutions. The Chapter recognizes Delaware’s law enforcement and private security professionals through our annual Law Enforcement Luncheon and Awards Ceremony and the Oxley Awards Dinner.
