Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response
The PPVAR (Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response) is a true public/private partnership that brings together all the stakeholders in property crime to promote video alarms to make arrests and reduce losses. Video alarms have proven arrest rates hundreds of times greater than traditional blind alarm systems; arrest rates with traditional alarms are less than one tenth of one percent (0.08%). In best case scenarios, video alarm systems have delivered arrest rates of over 50% of actual burglaries with many examples of over 20%. With leadership from the Police community, National Sheriffs Assn., and the National Insurance Crime Bureau, this public/private partnership reaches out beyond the security industry to include all the stakeholders in property crime. This is the first organization that brings together all the property crime stakeholders to focus on combating property crime using video alarms to protect the residential and commercial property owners in the community.
