St. Louis Police Deploys Real-Time Crime Center Backed by Motorola Solutions Technology

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and Motorola Solutions announced Thursday the integration of a real-time crime center utilizing Motorola Solutions’ Real-Time Intelligence Client, which helps aggregate and correlate data from multiple sources such as video, sensors, alarms, computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and records management systems.

The system allows the St. Louis Police Department to be able to aggregate and correlate data from multiple sources where it can then be easily provided to first responders on the scene. The new solutions are the first steps in increasing situational awareness while helping to keep citizens and officers safe.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department has approximately 1,350 officers and 520 civilian employees serving more than 62 square miles and more than 300,000 residents.

“The Intelligence-Led Public Safety capabilities being implemented by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department will help increase situational awareness while helping to keep officers and citizens safe.” said Motorola Solutions Smart Public Safety Vice President Tom Guthrie. “These tools will help the department unlock additional value in its existing technology investmentswhile getting the right information to the right people at the right time to help officers avert, respond to and resolve incidents.”

As part of the initial deployment, Motorola Solutions will install two Real-Time Intelligence Client positions consisting of a video wall with eight displays (expandable to 32 displays), existing video management systems integrated with CAD and third-party applications such as gunshot detection solution ShotSpotter.

"Technology is part of police officers lives and Motorola Solutions technology is providing a platform that interfaces with existing systems and provides officers with more information than ever before," said St. Louis Metropolitan Police Chief Sam Dotson. “In today’s technological world officers and citizens are demanding it. Ultimately we have a safer community and focused resources because of the technology."

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is also a customer of PublicEngines, which was recently acquired by Motorola Solutions. The combination of PublicEngines’ analytics technology such as CommandCentral with Motorola Solutions’ situational awareness tools will give St. Louis an unmatched platform for delivery of Intelligence-Led Public Safety capabilities, Motorola said in a statement.

“Police departments across the country are looking for smarter ways to capture, analyze and correlate the large amounts of crime and potential crime data they receive to gain a common operating picture. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department now uses Motorola Solutions, Inc.’s Intelligence-Led Public Safety solutions in its real-time crime center to help identify and distribute information to officers before crimes occur, during active incidents and in support of investigations,” Motorola stated, adding that, “Giving officers better information can help improve response times, increase citizen engagement and maximize the use of taxpayer dollars for an overall safer community.”
