Philadelphia, PA – EY has announced that Todd Leggett, CEO of 3SI Security Systems, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2018 Award in the Greater Philadelphia Region. The awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

About 3SI Security Systems
Since 1971, 3SI’s security solutions have protected customers in Financial, Retail and Law Enforcement organizations. Consistent innovation led the company to expand from its initial smoke and dye technology for cash protection to advanced solutions including GPS Tracking and Tracing Technologies. “Where traditional alarm systems rarely succeed in catching criminals, our technology’s success rate is phenomenal…approaching 85% in some markets” Leggett says. “Unfortunately, many loss prevention professionals don’t think of GPS Tracking as a security solution and have no idea they can get such great results at a very reasonable cost. Once people hear about us and our results, they’re amazed…and they usually end up as customers!” With a mission to help create a “#SaferWorld,” 3SI works with law enforcement to protect and recover valuable assets, and apprehend criminals to prevent future crimes. 3SI was part of the ICI Group until 2002 when it became privately held. In 2017, LLR Partners of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, acquired the company.
