Motorola Solutions Si500 body-worn cameras and digital evidence management software provides a secure solution from capture to courtroom
ORLANDO, Fla. – Oct. 8, 2018 – Police officers from the Orlando Police Department are using Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) Si500 body-worn cameras to strengthen community trust by improving accountability and transparency. When a video is taken, built-in security protects evidence captured at the scene of incident so that it remains untouched throughout its lifecycle.
“Our solutions are built for the mission-critical needs of public safety,” said Robert Marshall, vice president of sales, Motorola Solutions. “We have been working closely with the Orlando Police Department to provide them with secure solutions, such as the Si500, that help them protect residents and the millions of visitors who enjoy the city’s attractions.”
Cybersecurity is critical in this day and age, especially when it comes to information that can help protect communities. The Si500 and its digital evidence management software is a secure solution that safeguards evidence against tampering. Chain of custody is automatically established when a video and additional information is captured.
The Si500 goes beyond industry practices for cybersecurity protocols and data integrity. Videos are encrypted both on the Si500 and when being transmitted over Wi-Fi. The Si500 is also more than a body-worn camera. It includes a touch screen for evidence management and has a built-in speaker microphone that connects to Motorola Solutions APXTM two-way radios. Officers do not need to wear a separate speaker microphone, reducing the load they have to carry when on patrol.
The Si500 works seamlessly with Motorola Solutions’ end-to-end suite of command center software designed to improve operations from the time an emergency call is placed to after an incident is resolved.
