The ASIS Foundation
is pleased to announce Kevin Sluka of the ASIS Long Island (N.Y.) Chapter as the winner of the prestigious Timothy J. Walsh APC I Award. The Walsh Award pays for tuition, transportation, hotel costs and course materials for the Asset Protection Course I (APC I, Concepts and Methods
), to be held March 16-19 in New Orleans.
Sluka is a security analyst in the Global Security Department of Avon Products Inc. Prior to joining Avon, Kevin worked for AlliedBarton Security Services as an account manager for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. He is a graduate of Molloy College in New York, with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. “I knew I wanted to work in security after taking my first criminal justice class in college,” Sluka says. “Now that I am working in this field, I believe professional development is one of the most important aspects of career growth.”
Candidates for the Walsh Award
must be nominated by their ASIS chapter, be members in good standing and have at least two years of security experience.
The award, introduced in 2004, recognizes the efforts of individuals striving for excellence within the security industry. Given twice a year, it is named in honor of Timothy J. Walsh, CPP, one of the early pioneers of ASIS International
