Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response (PPVAR)
“The Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response (PPVAR) is a new public/private partnership whose board of directors includes law enforcement, insurers and alarm companies – all the stakeholders in the battle against property crime. The PPVAR is working with police and sheriffs to drive new standards and best practices. Law enforcement across the country has joined the PPVAR Video Verification Committee to help move this project forward. Committee members include the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept., Phoenix PD, Houston PD, Chicago PD, as well as the Texas Police Chiefs Assn. Video verified alarm systems are becoming a significant tool that pushes the power of video into the local homes and businesses to maximize the effectiveness of limited law enforcement resources.
