Security 101® - Richmond, a leading security systems integrator, announced Real Life as the winner of the 2018 Gift of Security. The corporate giving initiative donates $10,000 worth of integrated security services from locally owned offices, and equipment from program product partner, Axis Communications, to deserving nonprofits. All integrated security solutions provided are completely free for the nonprofit winner.
This year nearly 70,000 votes were cast collectively to determine 15 nonprofit award winners at different office locations throughout the country.
Since inception, the Gift of Security has provided integrated security solutions to nearly 30 organizations. The most challenging part is getting organizations to understand the legitimacy of the giving program and to nominate themselves. Local offices are privately owned and under no obligation to participate in the Gift of Security. In fact, employees at participating local offices often donate their time during the work week to execute the program and donate time on the weekend for installations.
The award presentation will take place in January 2018.
Nonprofit finalists have been named for the 2018 Gift of Security and the winning nonprofit will be determined by online vote. Voting to take place November 16 - December 8.

On June 7th, we held our first educational event seminar of the year and it couldn’t have gone better. Almost 50 people attended and were treated to a fantastic lunch courtesy of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, as well as an informational seminar about the recent developments made in “smart city” technology. Big thanks to our sponsors: Hitachi & OnSSI for their interesting presentations, as well as all those involved in making this possible. Stay tuned for future information on upcoming events in the area.
Team101 in Richmond attended the Henrico Business Leaders monthly breakfast. Henrico Police Chief Doug Middleton led a presentation on "Body Cameras in Henrico County and the Fair and Impartial Policing Project." Chief Middleton and members of his force outlined programs they have put in place to reduce crime and build community trust. Many of these efforts began long before police actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and New York City made international news.
