John Elway signs an autograph for an excited fan at the IACP show in Denver. Elway drew hundreds of autograph seekers to the Digital Ally booth at the show.
Hundreds gathered around Digital Ally's Booth at the 116th International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Denver last Monday in the hopes of meeting John Elway.
Visitors ranging from Colby the Crime Dog to Miss Montana waited in line for autographs and pictures while others crowded around just for the chance to snap a shot of the retired Denver Broncos star.
The line wound around and away from Digital Ally’s booth well before and after the time Elway was scheduled to greet guests. “Look at the line!” exclaimed one approaching visitor. “He’s an important man!” replied his companion.
Digital Ally, which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, supplied custom-designed 8x10s and miniature footballs for the event. The booth was lined with active DVM series in-car video systems, the DVF-500 digital video flashlight, and even a Harley-Davidson motorcycle mounted with Digital Ally's modular, all-weather DV-500 Ultra video system for visitors to enjoy experimenting with as they waited. Representatives of the company also circulated with Digital Ally's new FirstVu wearable video system, which was especially popular.
“It was fun,” remarked one guest. “The video systems were impressive and it was an honor to meet Elway.”
Elway was elected on the initial ballot to the Pro Football Hall of Fame during his first year of eligibility in 2004. His legend aggregated over 16 seasons with the Denver Broncos. He is best remembered for his 47 game-winning or game-tying drives in the fourth quarter (another NFL record), his spectacular passing statistics, and his enduring competitive spirit. Elway quarterbacked the Broncos in five Super Bowls (another NFL record) and won two championships. Elway ranks second to only Dan Marino in passing yardage, attempts, completions, and 3,000-yard seasons.
