The Washington Homeland Security Roundtable will honor federal officials from Department of Homeland Security component departments for work with industry partners at an upcoming Holiday Reception event.
The Industry Engagement Awards aims to acknowledge agencies who maintain relationships with the industry segment, WHSR said Nov. 18.
"Partnerships enable real collaboration between industry and government to help the public sector achieve its goals," said Kay Olive, WHSR director.
Michael Fisher, U.S. Border Patrol chief, will present the award at the event on Dec. 4 and a Transportation Security Administration senior official will talk about the program's benefits for the agency.
WHSR also plans to announce the non-profit group’s initiatives for the coming year.
The TSA and Border Patrol were given the award in 2013 for their work with the industry.
