ASIS Foundation Selects Canadian Chapter as Winner of Roy Bordes Physical Security Award

Alexandria, Va 2010-03-17

​The ASIS Foundation has awarded the 2010 Roy Bordes Award for Physical Security to the Edmonton and Northern Alberta chapter. Established in 2008, this annual award covers the costs for one ASIS chapter to receive a two-day, locally delivered, customized physical security program. 

“The opportunity for a workshop in physical security will be a significant asset to security practitioners in Alberta and neighboring provinces,” said chapter chair Dennis Shepp, CPP, PCI. 

The Edmonton and Northern Alberta chapter was the first ASIS International chapter established in Canada.

The ASIS Foundation Board of Trustees established the Roy Bordes Award for Physical Security to recognize Bordes’ commitment to ASIS International and to the security profession. Bordes died in 2008, after a career of more than 30 years in the security industry. For more information on ASIS Foundation awards and scholarships, click here.
