Anthony Canale Joins PPVAR Board of Directors

January 30, 2013

The new PPVAR (Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response) is pleased to announce that Anthony Canale, vice president of Verisk Crime Analytics, has joined its board of directors. Verisk Crime Analytics, a unit of Verisk Analytics, supports law enforcement with crime-related analytical tools that bridge the gap between the public and private sectors to provide value for the industries they serve.

“Our involvement with PPVAR fits with the mission of Verisk Crime Analytics to use data and analytical tools to support public safety operations and to help our clients reduce the economic impact of crime,” said Canale.

Verisk Crime Analytics owns and operates national crime databases that provide services to the construction, retail, transportation, manufacturing, and insurance industries.

“The economic downturn has put public safety budgets under pressure while increasing the motivation for certain property crimes,” explained David Shillingford, president of Verisk Crime Analytics. “It’s therefore imperative that private industry become better at collaborating and sharing data with the public sector and creating analytical crime prevention methods. PPVAR is a great example of this new breed of public-private partnerships.”

The PPVAR is a nonprofit association of all property crime stakeholders that promotes priority law enforcement response to video-verified alarms to make more arrests, minimize losses and reduce false alarms. The association provides training to insurance underwriters, loss control professionals, law enforcement and alarm dealers through a series of webinars, regional seminars and training sessions provided in conjunction with trade association conferences.
