March 12, 2009

New York, NY — Governor David A. Paterson has appointed Robert S. Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M Protection Resources, to be Vice Chairman of the New York State Security Guard Advisory Council. Created as part of the Security Guard Act of 1992, the Council is composed of seventeen members, recommended by members of the Executive and Legislative branches of State government, who serve in an advisory capacity to the State's two relevant regulatory bodies: The Department of State's Division of Licensing Services, and the Division of Criminal Justice Services, which regulates training standards and certification.

"I am pleased to be able to serve on the State Security Guard Advisory Council in order to help identify and clarify for regulators and the public the wide variety of issues faced by the security industry that affect the safety and wellbeing of the people, businesses and critical infrastructure of New York," said Tucker.

A former Assistant District Attorney and Special Assistant to Queens DA Richard A. Brown, Mr. Tucker is the current President of ALDONYS, the Associated Licensed Detectives of New York State, a non-profit organization that represents members of the Security Guard industry. He purchased a local security guard company in 1999 and, over the past decade, has built it into T&M Protection Resources, a multi-dimensional resource for sophisticated security and intelligence services for leading corporations, organizations and high-profile individuals in New York, throughout the United States and around the globe.

"In a world of ever-present and rapidly changing threats to the safety and security of people and property, our industry must be prepared to respond efficiently and effectively to the peoples' need for protection," Tucker added, noting that there are approximately 141,000 registered security guards in New York State currently operating under the uniform training and licensing standards established by the Security Guard Act of 1992.
