The managed service contract is valued at more than A$50 million (US$38 million) and will run for a minimum of five years with the potential to extend to 11 years. The solution includes, mPol, developed by Gridstone, a mobile application developer that Motorola Solutions acquired in November 2016.
The service will provide real-time information to 10,000 police officers equipped with iPads and iPhones, helping them manage their daily work more safely, efficiently and productively. The solution will also help reduce the duplication of data entry by officers while increasing workforce collaboration by sharing vital information between frontline personnel and their colleagues working in control rooms.
The technology will also help Victoria Police preserve its mission-critical radio communications for essential emergency communications by removing lower priority traffic from the radio network. This investment represents a major goal within Victoria Police’s workforce reform and technology plan.
The application platform was implemented by Queensland Police and will be tailored to meet the specific needs of Victoria Police. Motorola Solutions will lead a consortium of service providers to deliver the contract including Optus, providing the carrier network solution to enable police officers to stay connected to critical information while on the move, and CompNow to supply the Apple mobile devices, logistics and device repair services.
