ST. PAUL, Minn.—The Sonitrol National Dealers Association has voted to become a member of the Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response, the PPVAR announced on April 18.

The SNDA is composed of 45 independent Sonitrol franchise holders across North America. While PPVAR’s primary focus is on video-verified alarms, the organization said it welcomes the inclusion of audio verification dealers to the mix.

“Sonitrol’s impressive record of over 165,000 arrests and strong historical relationships with local law enforcement are consistent with the PPVAR’s mission to build a strong public/private partnership and make more arrests,” PPVAR President Donald Young, who is also CIO of Protection 1, said in a prepared statement.

William McNabney, who will represent the entire SNDA on the PPVAR board, said Sonitrol is the pioneer in verified alarms and joining the PPVAR “just makes sense.”

The current PPVAR board seat held by Douglas Curtiss, owner of Sonitrol New England, will be reassigned to McNabney, the statement said.
