Dutch Caribbean Police Trial Motorola Public-Safety Mobile Apps Service
Thursday, August 30, 2018 | Comments

Korps Politie Caribisch Nederland (KPCN) completed a successful trial of a hosted turnkey solution by Motorola Solutions in collaboration with partner Critical Communication Caribbean (C3), providing access to public-safety mobile applications.

Intelligent Communications as a Service is designed for public safety and emergency response teams who need specialized public-safety communications over broadband networks, using purpose-built and traditional smart devices.

“We started the trial seven months ago and within this very short period of time, we have been witness of the good impact of Motorola Solutions’ Intelligent Communications as a Service (ICaaS) for our mission,” said W. Baker, KPCN Saba. “Without the need for an initial capital investment on servers and data centers, this model allowed us to have always up to date public-safety solutions, ready to provide intelligence in real time by accessing and sharing critical information in an extremely secure way, over existing broadband networks.”

The company’s public-safety mobile applications help share critical intelligence data among officers in the field and personnel at the command center. They work across different networks and devices, enabling real-time communications and collaboration that can accelerate time to resolution.

The service package included mobile apps such as broadband push-to-talk (PTT), mapping, messaging and whiteboarding, which enables in-field, interactive media-based collaboration and information sharing. It allows officers to graphically share operations, response plans and areas of interest through drawings on a shared map on their devices.

This service ran on the Motorola Solutions LEX L10 – public safety Long Term Evolution (LTE) handheld device. Thirty devices have being used by police officers of the BES Dutch Caribbean Police deployed across the Caribbean islands of Bonaire, St, Eustatius and Saba.
