ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill.—Video verification will be the focal point of a May 15 meeting of the Illinois Electronic Security Association, according to a statement from the organization, based here.

The discussion will feature Keith Jentoft, liaison for the Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response (PPVAR), which has made a recent push to bring video verification to the mainstream burglar alarm market, the statement said. Meeting attendees will be able to share their opinions and positions on this subject.

Video verification in recent months has become a hot topic, becoming a featured item at the Barnes Buchanan Conference, the ISO Executive Loss Control Forum, and at ISC West, according to the statement.

The PPVAR is advocating a new public/private partnership between alarm companies, insurance companies and law enforcement—the “stakeholders in the battle against property crime.” At the meeting, Jentoft will share case studies and provide resources to help alarm companies work with central stations to maximize video verification opportunities, and to gain a competitive edge over new entrants to the security market, the statement said.
