Abu Dhabi Police Select Hytera Communications Technology
Tuesday, June 09, 2020 | Comments

Police officers in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), are using Hytera’s Narrowband and Broadband Convergent Communication Solution. To prevent the spread of coronavirus, police officers must ensure the public's commitment to the national movement restrictions, and reliable communications is an indispensable part to better safeguard citizens.

“During the day, we spread awareness that people should not step out during Sanitization Program, and if we spot anyone not wearing a mask, we tell them to put it on,” said one of the police officers from the patrols unit. “We would give a warning to first-time offenders and impose a 1,000 dirham (US$272) fine if they're found outside again.”

Abu Dhabi Police are responsible for enforcing the compliance with the UAE federal law. The department urges the community to practice social distancing measures and to wear masks and gloves when stepping out.

In 2019, patrol vehicles were equipped with Hytera Smart devices, which support LTE. This provided police officers with a converged radio and a smartphone supporting both narrowband and broadband technologies. Smart devices deliver key voice services through the built-in TETRA module, guaranteeing the reliability and security of the Abu Dhabi Police’s daily voice communications.

The LTE and Wi-Fi part of the radio provide the broadband data services and application software to support multimedia services, and smart applications used by police to execute different tasks online, transmit data to the data center and send the required message or safety instructions to the public.

A built-in GPS location functionality combined with integrated mapping systems and compasses can upload GPS locations to the command-and-control center, which makes the dispatch task more efficient.
