Police Authorised Data Downloads

Instant notifications for faster claims processing

Real-time alerts for insured vehicles recovered in accidents

The faster an insurer knows about a motor accident, the faster it can assist a policyholder and process a claim. Police Authorised Data Downloads (PADDs) provide insurers with real-time notifications when their customer’s vehicle is recovered by police after a road traffic collision or a theft.

Shorten claim life cycles with early notification

Through a unique collaboration with UK police, Verisk provides insurers with these valuable notifications that can help reduce claims life cycles. When an officer recovers a vehicle, the PADDs system immediately checks the Motor Insurance Database (MID) to find the insured’s insurance company and then notifies the insurer of vehicle details, location, and release date.
