The groundhog may have seen his shadow, but Aftermath is already gearing up for the conference season! Last week, the company attended one its first events of the new year. The Florida Sheriff’s Association Winter Conference was held in sunny Jacksonville, Florida, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Conference Center. From January 29th through February 1st, Aftermath’s National Director of Business Development, Stephen Brown, and Mike Webster, Senior Manager of Law Enforcement Relations, visited with Florida law enforcement to discuss the benefits of professional crime scene cleaning.
No Time For The Beach!
According to the organization’s website, the purpose of the Florida Sheriff’s Association “is to foster the effectiveness of the Office of Sheriff through leadership, education and training, innovative practices and legislative initiatives.” The Winter Conference offered participants continuing education opportunities, networking, award recognition and important updates in the organization and in the field of law enforcement in general. The event attracted representatives from almost every Sheriff’s Office in the state, as well as hundreds of partners, vendors, elected officials and other guests “interested in engaging on topics important to the future of law enforcement in Florida.”
At the booth, Stephen and Mike spoke with many of the sheriffs and deputies to draw attention to the value of proper crime scene cleaning. Attendees asked many thoughtful questions, particularly concerning response time and availability. Stephen explains: “We are fortunate to have two locations in Florida that can handle the entire state. We have a location in Broward County (Pompano Beach, FL) and one in Hillsborough County (Tampa, FL). These locations can respond within 4 hours to most parts of the state and within 8 hours to every part of the state. Offering same day response time is critical to many of our first responders when they communicate with families that Aftermath can help them.”
Stephen and Mike passed out conference goodie bags with marketing materials, including pens and notepads. They also gave away a 5.11 Tactical bag with PPE kits. The winner of the bag was Paul Bovino, Chief Community Policing Division, Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
Part of Your Community
Every year, Aftermath attends the National Sheriff’s Association Conference, as well as state and local conferences and training sessions. These events afford us the opportunity to meet face to face with first responders who work hard to help the families in our communities each and every day. By communicating directly with these professionals, we help ensure that those who need us are aware of the availability of professional biohazard cleaning.
