Dean A. Beers, CLI, CCDI
Elected as 3rd Vice President of National Council of Investigation & Security Services
The National Council of Investigation & Security Service (NCISS) held its annual meeting and conference, from October 9th to October 12th, in Charleston SC. Elections were also held. Dean A. Beers, CLI, CCDI was nominated and elected to the position of 3rd Vice President. He was most recently Secretary and previously the Regional Director (CO, WY, NE, NM, ID & UT).
Dean is looking forward to continued work on the legislative issues that impact professional investigators and security personnel throughout the country, primarily concerning federal legislation and rule making, as well as with states and their associations on local matters. The three vice presidents of NCISS have been tasked with jointly co-chairing the new State Legislative Awareness Monitoring (SLAM) with 1st Vice President James Huckabee and 2nd Vice President Thomas Shamshak. The six elected Regional Directors and four Members at Large make up this committee.
NCISS has over 900 members and serves over 60,000 individuals. NCISS is a cooperative effort of those companies and associations responsible for providing private security and investigation services to the legal profession, business community, government and the public. Each day an increasing number of problems confront the orderly growth of our profession. These problems include, among others: overly restrictive legislation regarding training and standards, proliferation of legislation requiring local licensing, public misunderstanding and misinformation on the role and contribution of private investigators and security services, and an uninformed media. It is the role of NCISS to meet and solve these problems while seeking to uncover and recommend action on any hidden potential problems which may have an effect on our profession.
Dean is the past Board Chairman of the Professional Private Investigators Association of Colorado, Governor of the Americas for the World Association of Detectives, and Region 6 representative on the Certified Legal Investigator committee for the National Association of Legal Investigators. In addition, he is a member of the Florida Association of Licensed Investigators, Texas Association of Licensed Investigators, California Association of Licensed Investigators, and the Criminal Defense Investigation Training Council.
