The USLBA "Best of Local Business" Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year, the USLBA identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2008 USLBA Award Program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USLBA and data provided by third parties.

"We are pleased to have been selected by the USLBA," notes John X. Adiletta, Chief Executive Officer of Somerset International. "Secure's proprietary technology offers an effective security tool for its users and its Personal Alarm Locator system is an ideal solution for use by organizations to take a proactive approach to personal security, allowing law enforcement or security personnel the opportunity to respond to an individual's distress while in process, instead of responding only after an event has taken place."
