Convergint’s Strategic Business Development of Government, David Klug, will be on the Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) – New Guidelines for a Layered and Tiered Approach to K-12 Safety and Security panel at ISC West 2019 on Thursday, April 11 beginning at 3:45 PM in the Sands 103, Level 1.

Along with Jake Parker and Kevin Wren, David will discuss the challenges faced by school districts in making safety and security improvements, as well as some of the latest trends related to technology and facility infrastructure, available grants, and other project-funding mechanisms. With over 30 years of experience in public safety technology and a background in forensic science, David brings diverse expertise to the panel. 

Convergint Technologies recently launched the STEP Up initiative, which helps strengthen security in schools. Convergint colleagues go out into their local communities and provide underserved schools with interior and exterior security systems installations, security upgrades, and security assessments. Local schools in cities across the country in need of security updates can apply now through April 15th to be considered for no-cost upgrades and services from Convergint Technologies.
