Motorola completes $50m Victoria Police managed service rollout Featured

By

Motorola Solutions has completed a contract, valued at $50 million, for the rollout of a new mobility managed service to Victoria Police, designed to enable increased situational awareness, safety and productivity on the front line.

Police officers across Victoria have received 9398 mobile devices loaded with smart applications to give them a technological edge to protect community safety.

Motorola says its complete, end-to-end managed service enables Victoria Police members to focus on core policing activities rather than managing the technology.

The service includes device management, support, repair and replacement services, with the technology delivering immediate operational information to police in the field, while helping to preserve mission-critical radio communications for when they are needed most.

The solution enables Victoria Police to meet a major goal within its BlueConnect program – “Connecting police and the community through technology.”

Motorola says the holistic managed service will run for a minimum of five years with the potential to extend to 11 years, valued at more than $50 million.

The solution includes a mobile application developed by Gridstone, the application development firm Motorola Solutions acquired in 2016.

Motorola Solutions vice-president and managing director Steve Crutchfield said the rollout of the technology was completed two months ahead of schedule.

“Victoria Police’s frontline officers now have access to data when and where they need it most and can manage their essential daily tasks more safely and efficiently," he said.

“For example, the application can provide vital information to officers before they enter a potentially dangerous situation. In the future, the application will also free up officers’ time, enabling them to complete crime reporting and administrative tasks in the field, instead of back at the station.”
