The Award

Security is often thankless work. Stratoscope’s L.I.S.T. Award is here to change that. This award acknowledges the “Leaders In Security + Technology” who apply their training to make sure every person and event is safe and secure. While we would be lost without our incredible CSOs and Directors, the world often forgets the industry’s frontline staff. These champions are our boots on the ground, ensuring everyone is safe from real-life harm and threats. It’s time we call them out and celebrate them for their hard work and dedication.

August 2022 Winner

Pierre Frelix

Pierre Frelix of Target Center

“When it comes to people’s safety, there’s no room to get it wrong. Other peoples’ lives are in our security team’s hands, and we usually have one chance to get it right. Policies and planning are important, but in the end it’s the people on the front lines who stop the threats.

There were less than 20 seconds from the time the protester got out of her seat until she was cleared from the court. People want to know how Pierre reacted so fast, but the truth is that he already knew what to watch for and he’d been ready for that moment for a while. Pierre is a perfect example of why it’s important to hire the right people and trust them to do their jobs.”

— Steve Sawyer, Director of Hospitality and Event Services at Target Center
