‘Friends Of Chuck’ founder receives Lifetime Achievement award from international security awards programme

Security veteran, Charles ‘Chuck’ Andrews, was revealed as the Lifetime Achievement award winner for his contributions to the security industry at the US Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) at Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Chicago on Monday 9th September 2019, where members of the industry gathered to celebrate recognition of exceptional performers.

The OSPAs are an international and independent awards scheme that strives to be inclusive of all players in the security sector by bringing together security associations around the world to celebrate the success stories within the industry.

Chuck Andrews was recognised for having played a key role over the past 4 decades in developing law enforcement and security practices and procedures which are still used today. He has mentored hundreds, if not thousands of young people who have gone on to successful law enforcement and security careers, and has earned the respect of security professionals around the world as a subject matter expert on all-things security.

Chuck has hundreds of key moments and prominent achievements over his 43 years. Six years ago, he founded Friends of Chuck to form significant and meaningful relationships with security colleagues and help them to find jobs, do business and support each other in the security industry. In that time, he has amassed 100,000+ members in 135 countries. He has mentored over 300 security colleagues and an estimated 500 young Law Enforcement processionals and security colleagues through their careers, life and more Chuck also achieved ASIS International Board status after 29 years of volunteer service; he has served in nearly every ASIS volunteer role available.

Chuck’s achievement in winning the most prestigious OSPA was shared globally throughout the industry, and Chuck’s new status as an OSPA winner now links him to a broader network of Outstanding Security Professionals who are being recognised for their commitment to excellence in security.
