Motorola Solutions Celebrates 50th Anniversary in Italy and Shows Next Generation Smart Public Safety Solutions
Proven record of providing Italian public safety organizations and commercial customers with future-proof communications solutions over five decades
ROME, Italy – September 22, 2016 – Public safety organizations are facing extraordinary challenges today – ranging from preventing riots to coordinating refugee relief. In times of extreme threats and catastrophes, the demand for intelligent and reliable public safety solutions is stronger than ever before. Motorola Solutions is responding to this demand with its next generation Smart Public Safety Solutions just in time for Motorola’s 50th anniversary in Italy. The company’s longstanding and successful presence in the country is characterized by a history of innovations and milestones that has seen it delivering communication devices to most public safety organizations in Italy including the Carabinieri, Financial Guard, Civil Protection, local police and ambulance services.
“Over the past 50 years, we have developed strong relationships with many public safety organizations and commercial customers in Italy,” said Luciano Valentini, country manager Motorola Solutions Italy. “We are proud to support the Italian market with our communications solutions that make public safety and commercial users even more effective and enable them to fulfill their tasks in a safe and reliable way.”
With the Command Center of the Future and its enhanced Connected Police Officer, Motorola Solutions provides the next generation of Smart Public Safety Solutions and continues its successful history of innovation worldwide and in Italy specifically. Whether the priority is keeping emergency responders connected to command centers or ensuring reliable communications with employees on-site or off-site, Motorola Solutions combines smart intelligence in equipment such as body-worn cameras with next generation analytics to provide unmatched end-to-end solutions for first responders and public safety providers.
COMMAND CENTER OF THE FUTURE
Motorola Solutions’ comprehensive CommandCentral portfolio enables increased pre-, mid- and post-event awareness in the command centre and on the street based on advanced analytics. Public safety agencies and departments can aggregate data and visualize it in several ways, allowing crime center analysts to view multiple feeds on one screen and share high-definition images of suspects, vehicles, license plate numbers and other critical information with responding officers.
“Our Smart Public Safety Solutions transform ever-growing data sources into a force multiplier, enabling fast, accurate emergency response and crime prevention,” said Stephen Beach, Smart Public Safety Solutions specialist at Motorola Solutions. “By harnessing data from numerous sources such as live video footage from unmanned aerial vehicles and body-worn cameras or accessing live social media, we can improve situational awareness and officer safety while also enabling first responders to keep their everyday workflow operations simple and intuitive.”
CONNECTED POLICE OFFICER WITH BODY-WORN CAMERAS
Motorola Solutions also introduced an enhanced live demo of its revolutionary Connected Police Officer concept. When equipped with advanced, future-oriented technology like body-worn cameras, LTE devices, location and equipment sensors, and biometrics and collaboration solutions, police officers are always connected to the control room, improving safety and efficiency during operations.
Connected Police Officer is even more powerful thanks to Motorola Solutions’ Digital Evidence Management Solutions, comprised of the Si500 Video Speaker Microphone (VSM) and the CommandCentral Vault digital evidence management software. The Si500 Video Speaker Microphone dramatically increases situational awareness, information gathering and evidence collection capabilities in the field. Unlike typical body-worn cameras, the Motorola Si500 VSM combines voice communications with video and still image capture, enabling police officers to capture and record events accurately in the moment they happen. The Motorola Si500 VSM is complemented by the cloud-based application CommandCentral Vault that provides enhanced chain-of-custody controls for end-to-end security and content integrity.
