Stanley Security partners with Indianapolis Colts
Stanley Security Solutions announced on Oct. 24 that it is the Official Security Partner of the Colts and will be providing security for the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, as well as the grounds around the Colts practice center. This is the fourth season for the two organizations’ partnership.
“The partnership between Stanley Security Solutions and the Indianapolis Colts has continued to grow over the years,” said Brian Kaner, chief financial officer of Stanley Security Solutions. “It is important for us to give back to our community, and that includes supporting our local athletic teams. Stanley Security Solutions is honored to help protect one of the most beloved staples in the state of Indiana.”
Stanley Security Solutions, a division of Stanley Black & Decker, provides a full line of security products, services and technologies to end-user customers, including schools, hospitals, governments, some of the world’s largest retailers, financial service institutions and airports.
“We are extremely excited about developing an even deeper relationship with Stanley, which has been a long-time supporter of the Colts,” said Jay Souers, senior vice president of sales for the Colts. “Good safety and protection for our team is critical and having Stanley Security Solutions by our side is comforting for our players and staff. We also love the fact that Stanley employs over 1,000 Hoosiers.”
In-stadium signage, in addition to media and promotional components, are all a part of the new partnership. One component is the “Stanley Protection Program” season, which will support Riley Hospital for Children. For each game that the Colts offensive line allows one or fewer sacks, Stanley Security Solutions will donate $500 to Riley Hospital.
“Stanley Security Solutions puts us on the cutting edge of technology, which is essential to our organization,” explained Dave Atkins, director of the physical plant for the Colts. “Their staff explored our needs and provided a comprehensive and scalable system. This system isn’t just bells and whistles. It is user-friendly technology which allows us to easily monitor our facility whether we’re on site or not.”
Stanley anticipates starting security upgrades in the Colts facilities as soon as possible to ensure the highest quality of security and protection for the team.
