Making a BOLD Statement…Just What You Need!

IMG_6311

When you are a well-established company in the security systems industry, it is important that you present your brand in a dynamic way. Sonitrol Security had transitioned its brand visually across the board and, once again asked Conder to apply its expertise in branded vehicle wraps to its growing fleet of service vehicles. With locations in over 200 cities in the US, Canada and Europe, it was crucial that the new Sonitrol “look” was bold and consistent. The Conder team helped Sonitrol NC/SC insure that the new graphic theme met the needs and look they desired and applied the graphics to the initial vehicles that are seen publicly every day. The Sonitrol brand was applied to a number of full scale Ford 150 cargo vans and Ford Transit Connect vans and will seek to grow its new “look” as new vehicles are added to the fleet. Conder, the certified 3M dealer, delivers striking graphic solutions to marketing efforts at any scale. It is committed to implement customer’s brands that lead to effective sales opportunities.

Will Bannister, the Sonitrol Operations Manager, was quite pleased with the new fleet graphics… “just what we needed.” Conder takes pride in its working relationship with customers. Whether it is fleet graphics or public events, we work to insure that a company’s marketing efforts are executed with attention to detail and an understanding of budget and planning. The 60 year old company has expanded its products and services from flags & flag poles to signs and graphics for a vast customer base in the Southeast.

U.S. Flags at Half-Staff in Remembrance of 9/11

half-staff-patriot-day

This year marks the first year in U.S. history that freshmen in High School will learn about 9/11 as a historical event that took place before their birth. 15 years after the terrorist attacks shook our country, it is important to remember why we keep our flags at half-staff every year on Patriot Day and why we should give a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11.

As stated on Annin Flagmakers Website: “Patriot Day has been added to the Flag Holidays listed in section 174 of the US Flag Code. On December 18, 2001, President Bush signed Public Law No: 107-89, designating September 11th as Patriot Day. State and local governments and the people of the United States are asked to observe Patriot Day with appropriate programs and activities to honor the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks on that date in 2001.

The day has also been designated as a day that the US flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sundown, not just until noon as is done on Memorial Day. In addition the people of the United States are asked to observe a moment of silence on Patriot Day in remembrance of the victims.”

It is a common theme that “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Though the vast majority of Americans no longer stand in a moment of silence every morning, it is still important to teach our students why we did and why we still do each year on September 11th. It is a sign of respect for our fellow Americans who’s lives were cut short due to the horrific events that took place on this day 15 years ago and to their families who have had to continue on without them. 

To display the flags at half-staff from sunrise until sunset is also a hugely important theme that we, as Americans, should follow. Our nation changed on September 11th 2001. The Country that we were before that day is different from who we are now. Younger generations will only be learning about these events second hand. They won’t know what their fellow Americans experienced on that day. To keep our flags at half-staff is a sign of mourning and respect as a country. When this year’s freshman, and all those in grades K-8 step outside on September 11th, the sight of US flags at half-staff throughout the community and across the country will be a reminder that respect will always be given on this day. It will never be JUST a history lesson in a text book. It will be built into the fabric of this nation as it grows, generation after generation, so that we will never forget.

Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week

half staff

A PROCLAMATION

“For generations, the brave women and men of our Nation’s law enforcement have answered the call to serve and protect our communities.  Enduring long shifts in dangerous and unpredictable circumstances, our Nation’s peace officers embody the courage and honor that represent the best of America.  On Peace Officers Memorial Day and during Police Week, we express our gratitude for the selfless public servants who wear the badge and put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe, and we pay respect for those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

In moments of danger and desperation, the first people we turn to are law enforcement officers.  These often unsung heroes risk their lives and sacrifice precious time with loved ones so their fellow Americans can live in peace and security.  But more than that, they are leaders in their communities, serving as mentors, coaches, friends, and neighbors — working tirelessly each day to ensure that the people they serve have the opportunities that should be afforded to all Americans.  In honor of all they do, we must give these dedicated professionals the support and appreciation they deserve.

My Administration continues to work to ensure police departments and other law enforcement agencies throughout our country have the resources required to hire, train, and retain officers, provide officers with modern and necessary equipment, and utilize technology to enhance their communication networks.  And our Federal law enforcement officers regularly partner with their State and local counterparts to address some of our Nation’s most difficult problems.  We know that strong community bonds are essential for law enforcement to do their jobs effectively.  I established a Task Force on 21st Century Policing, bringing together law enforcement, academia, youth, civil rights, and community leaders to provide concrete recommendations to enhance public safety while building community trust.  Law enforcement officials care deeply about their communities, and together with our partners in law enforcement, we must work to build up our neighborhoods, prevent crime before it happens, and put opportunity within reach for all our people.

Because each fallen peace officer is one too many, I proudly signed the Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu National Blue Alert Act last year — bipartisan legislation that establishes a national “Blue Alert” communications network to disseminate information about threats to officers.  The legislation seeks to ensure that appropriate steps can be taken as quickly as possible to provide for an officer’s safety.  I also announced new, commonsense gun safety reforms to help keep guns out of the wrong hands and emphasized that the already dangerous job of an officer is far more dangerous than it should be because it remains too easy for criminals and people who are a danger to others or themselves to have access to guns.

It takes a special kind of courage to be a peace officer.  Whether deputies or detectives, tribal police or forest service officers, beat cops or Federal agents, we hold up those who wear the badge as heroes.  Though they too often spend their days witnessing America at its worst, in their extraordinary examples, we see America at its best.  On this day and throughout this week, let us celebrate those who nobly serve each day — and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice — to move our world toward a more just and safe tomorrow.  May we carry forward their brave and selfless spirit as we keep working together to shape a future worthy of their commitment.

By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as “Peace Officers Memorial Day” and the week in which it falls as “Police Week.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 15, 2016, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 15 through May 21, 2016, as Police Week.  I call upon all Americans to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities.  I also call on the Governors of the United States and its Territories, and appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day.  I further encourage all Americans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes and businesses on that day.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand sixteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.”
