Motorola Joins SaferWatch to Secure Florida Schools
Thursday, July 09, 2020 | Comments

Motorola Solutions and SaferWatch, a mobile application that allows authorized personnel to initiate a mobile panic button during an emergency via smartphone, teamed to deliver cutting-edge school safety solutions in Florida.

Motorola’s Safe Schools solutions can be customized to meet a school’s or county’s unique needs and span the end-to-end workflow for everyday school operations and emergencies. SaferWatch provides mobile panic buttons that can be assigned to school staff and administrators, government officials, and businesses, as well as used at large-scale events.

When initiating SaferWatch’s panic button, public-safety emergency operation centers are immediately notified of the situation. Alerts and detailed information including user profile, location coordinates, and supporting videos or pictures are aggregated in Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral Aware software, which provides 9-1-1 operators with real-time intelligence for a unified operational view of events to share with first responders en route to a school.

These solutions meet the criteria of Alyssa’s Law (SB 70) signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis June 30. The law requires every school in the state to implement a mobile panic alert system connected to a public-safety answering point (PSAP) and first responders. The solution was implemented in Broward County where the SaferWatch app covers more than 440 public, private and charter schools.
