"For five years, ITT has sponsored the Community Policing Award," said Larry Curfiss, vice president and director, business development, ITT Industries Night Vision. "Each year, I am continually amazed at how communities are empowering officers with technology and decision-making to
make their neighborhoods a safer place to live."
