IASIR was founded in 1993 by a farsighted group of regulatory administrators who realized that by joining hands they could enhance their ability to regulate and promote professionalism of the private security, private investigative, alarm and related industries. Now, 25 years later, IASIR’s membership has grown to include most state and provincial government regulatory agencies, as well as law enforcement and industry members from across North America and increasingly, other parts of the world.
Participants will undertake a mid-pandemic evaluation of their experiences navigating the wake of COVID-19. It was sudden, it was invasive, it was life-threatening. Some operations were well-prepared and some weren’t. This is the place to address what happened, challenges faced and how they were addressed, and what are the solutions long-term.
Under a general theme of Automation and Other Practical Response to COVID-19, we’ll look at reaction across jurisdictions and consider more deeply some of the technology and practices that moved both government agencies and the regulated industries forward, including e-licensure systems, statutory preparation and provisional licensing, electronic fingerprinting and background check processes, and virtual training.
The International Association of Security and Investigative Regulators (IASIR) is made up of state and provincial government regulators of the private security, investigation and alarm industries, as well as law enforcement and industry members from across North America and increasingly, other parts of the world. The annual conference is the Association’s premier event focusing on collaboration between these groups to enhance public safety by promoting professionalism through effective regulation.
SEPT. 23: The Mid-Pandemic Analysis – A Plus Delta Debriefing*
*A Plus Delta evaluation provides feedback on an experience or event and collects ideas for future improvements. Originally designed for commercial aviation and modified for health care, the approach focuses on actions and system-related issues and does not explain the “whys, hows or who-saids.” Let’s look at positive ways forward for private security regulation in 2020.
SEPT. 30: Notarize What? How Automation Maintains Licensure Processes Under Any Circumstances
OCT. 14: Virtual Training: Out of the Classroom and Into the Cloud
OCT. 21: Speed Dating for Government and Industry: REALLY Get to Know Your Partners

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Your Operations
We are seeking to conduct brief video interviews via computer in advance of the conference. These case studies will introduce portions of the program, stimulate further discussion and help us manage time constraints. Please consider what you can share that will help others in your situation.
What challenges has your agency or company faced since the pandemic struck, and how were they were overcome? How will your operations change going forward?
Has technology been the solution to any of the issues disrupting your operations during the shutdown? How is that going?
Did re-writing rules or regulations allow licensure to proceed in the midst of the crisis?
Has virtual training allowed your program to continue? How has that been received?
How have your relationships with Government and/or Industry representatives (possibly developed through IASIR) helped you to resolve problems during the pandemic?
Who is getting it right? Industry members: what changes have you seen that are really working? Government members: highlight ways Industry has helped with solutions.
