Orlando Police Department Deploys Motorola APX NEXT Radios
Wednesday, June 22, 2022 | Comments

The Orlando Police Department deployed 950 APX NEXT radios from Motorola Solutions. The radios will enhance officer and community safety with resilient and reliable voice communications, as well as everyday access to crucial police applications and databases.

“Our department prides itself on being at the forefront of technology,” said Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolón. “The smart applications and enhanced coverage capabilities of the new APX NEXT radios will help our officers perform more effectively and efficiently, enhancing overall officer and community safety. This investment in next-generation technology marks another step forward in our vision for the future of public safety, and we cannot thank the mayor enough for his unwavering support.”

APX NEXT radios offer advanced capabilities to help officers better protect and serve communities:
• Combined P25 radio connectivity with LTE broadband capabilities allows officers to travel outside the radio network’s coverage area while maintaining voice communication and access to essential information without interruption.
• Seamless integration with the Orlando Police Department’s Crime Center enables immediate access to records systems, ensuring officers are better informed at all times.
• Built-in public safety applications, such as mapping, track the location of officers to shorten response times and enhance safety in emergencies.
• The large, intuitive touchscreen makes it easy to upload information from the field, as well as search and review police databases, including imagery and video footage.

“We designed APX NEXT after extensive field research and testing, in consultation with law enforcement agencies across the country, to go beyond what was ever expected for a radio,” said Daniel Sanchez, Florida territory vice president, Motorola Solutions. “These radios bring critical information directly to officers’ fingertips, while still being the trusted mission-critical communications police have always relied upon. The Orlando Police Department’s investment in a device that combines mission-critical voice and purpose-built data applications will enhance their public safety communications.”

The deployment of radios is currently underway, with the full radio replacement expected to span the next few months. The Orlando Police Department joins Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the city of Tallahassee and is the 36th agency in Florida to invest in APX NEXT for public-safety communications.
