Motorola Solutions, Inc. (MSI - Free Report) recently announced that its Digital Evidence Management System has been awarded a 10-year contract worth $18.98 million for a secure and integrated unified platform by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).
Notably, Motorola’s end-to-end solution is distinctive to the market as it ensures the veracity of all evidence tied to an incident, while simplifying workflows for police officers via a single sign-on portal. Also, this forms a part of Motorola’s complete CommandCentral software suite, which helps teams work smarter and more efficiently from call to case closure.
Motorola’s Digital Evidence Management System allows police departments to better allocate their time by automating backend processes. The solution will be integrated with LVMPD’s existing Motorola software and products.
LVMPD will use CommandCentral Vault to assimilate and make readily accessible digital evidence to quickly respond to information requests and keep cases moving forward. CommandCentral Aware, a key component of the CommandCentral software suite, will help the department aggregate and integrate streaming videos, real-time alerts, assimilate information based on advanced data analytics as well as social media analytics, among others, into an intuitive interface with geospatial mapping.
Furthermore, LVMPD will use Motorola’s CommandCentral Analytics to compile historical incident data from existing computer-aided dispatch into heat charts and graphs.
Motorola continues to expand its software offerings to provide solutions to various segments of the public safety workflow. These systems drive demand for additional device sales, and promote software upgrades and infrastructure expansion. The comprehensive suite of services ensures continuity and reduces risks related to critical communications operations.
