SEARCH Information Sharing Programs Director Mallorie Teubner Earns PMP CertificationBack See more recent articles
The PMP certification process is rigorous, and requires a 4-year degree, 3 years of project management experience, 4,500 hours leading or directing projects, and 35 hours of project management education.
"Using a Project Management Professional increases the odds that projects will come in on time and under budget," explained Ms. Teubner. "I'll be using my PMP certification, practitioner experience in the field, and knowledge of best practices in project management to help SEARCH clients achieve success in their projects."
Ms. Teubner, a 5-year SEARCH employee, oversees SEARCH's initiatives to support justice and public safety information sharing nationwide. She and her team assist agencies nationwide in developing automated systems, integrating communications and information technology, and achieving communications interoperability in mission-critical projects.
She has more than 20 years of public safety experience with a solid track record of success in researching, recommending, and implementing technology at the state and local level. Her experience includes human resource management, labor negotiation, contract negotiation, purchasing, policy development, and handling multimillion-dollar budgets. She has worked with business partners and project stakeholders at all levels of government, as well as with state and federal legislators and policymakers on legislation, policy standardization, and training development and implementation.
Ms. Teubner previously served as Director of Integrated Information Systems for the Sangamon County (Illinois) Emergency Telephone System Department (ETSD), which provided continuous information systems support coverage for the ETSD and for more than 50 police, fire, and emergency management services agencies.
