As PPVAR continues to work toward its mission of promoting the value of verification during the
dispatch process, it is expanding the composition of its Board of Directors to increase the number of
public safety representatives. This change will ensure that the PPVAR board will represent a
balanced team of professionals with excellent relationships across both public and private sectors as
they work together on the issues related to alarm response process.
The Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR) is an organization bringing together Law Enforcement, Insurance, and the Security Industry to coordinate efforts to verify alarm activity, reduce false alarms, and increase apprehension rates and officer safety.
An important part of this mission is to develop standards and recommendations for making effective use of new technology and services – especially when innovations challenge relationship norms between the alarm industry and Public Safety. PPVAR believes that Law Enforcement must be allowed to make use of appropriate technology with the proper safeguards. To that effect:
PPVAR encourages clear and proactive communication of any relationships between Public Safety and Private companies.
PPVAR encourages transparency in those communications of the nature of the relationship and conditions and obligations of the involved parties.
