ALDONYS Elects T&M CEO Robert S. Tucker as President

February 26, 2009

New York, NY —Robert S. Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M Protection Resources, was sworn in as president of the Associated Licensed Detectives of New York State (ALDONYS) on February 26, 2009. Queens County District Attorney Richard A. Brown conducted the swearing-in ceremony for Tucker and other incoming officials at Marchi’s restaurant in Manhattan.

Also installed as officers for 2009-2010 were Theresa Balfe of Balfe Investigations, vice president of investigations; Mario Doyle of BuildingStar, vice president of security; Nick Himonidis of NGH Associates, secretary; and Lisa Dolan of Securit, treasurer. Newly installed regional directors were Kevin Mulligan of Mulligan Security, Bob Auletta of Summit Security, and Anthony Strollo of Independent Investigations.

“The objective of ALDONYS is to increase the public perception and understanding of the vital role our industry plays in safeguarding the people, businesses and critical infrastructure of New York,” said Tucker, who previously served as vice president of security for ALDONYS.

ALDONYS represents licensed security guard and private investigation firms and an estimated 141,000 guards registered in the state. As former chairman of its Security Guard Committee, Tucker expanded the scope and resources of the organization to support lobbying efforts on behalf of the security industry.

“Among my goals during the next two years is to engage and partner with law makers and law enforcement to ensure that our organization continues to effectively represent an industry that protects our citizens,” Tucker said.

Tucker formerly served as Assistant District Attorney and Special Assistant to Richard Brown until 1999, when he purchased what is now T&M Protection Resources. Brown was appointed in 1991 by then Governor Mario Cuomo to serve as Queens County District Attorney, a position in which he has remained since winning successive re-election bids.


Founded in 1950, ALDONYS is the largest New York State not-for-profit membership organization solely representing the interests of individuals, partnerships, and corporations who hold private investigator and/or watch, guard and patrol agency licenses issued by the New York Secretary of State, Division of Licensing Services.
