Fresno, CA | September 1, 2022 — The Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR), an organization established to promote the value of verification and validation of alarm events during the emergency response process, has engaged The Monitoring Association (TMA) as an independent contractor to provide administrative, clerical, accounting, and other business services. PPVAR will maintain its independence as a 501 C (6) organization and its Board of Directors, Executive Director, and membership will continue to operate independent of TMA.
The agreement is effective September 1, 2022.
Currently, PPVAR is also collaborating with TMA on the proposed ANSI Alarm Validation Scoring Standard (TMA-AVS-01). TMA serves as the ANSI Standards Development Organization of this and various other standards impacting the security monitoring industry. Moving forward, the two organizations look forward to working together on issues where their missions intersect.
Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm was founded in 2012 to promote the value of verification and validation of alarm events during the emergency response process. PPVAR is comprised of a diverse team representing all interests in the battle against property crime. PPVAR’s goal is to collaborate with all members involved in the alarm response process and share best practices, ideas, and the information necessary to maximize the effectiveness of all resources to protect our valued customers’ life and property and first responder safety.
If you’re a security dealer, you can encourage law enforcement to adopt a policy of higher priority response for verified alarms. And if you’re part of the law enforcement team, implementation is quick and easy. For more information, Contact PPVAR at Communications@ppvar.org or visit the website at www.PPVAR.org.
