Motorola Solutions has announced new integrations for its Pronto digital policing application software. The first integrates Motorola Solutions’ Edesix body-worn cameras into Pronto via the company’s digital evidence management system, CommandCentral Vault. The second is a successful trial that provides officers access to driver’s license images with Motorola Solutions’ Pronto solution.
As body-worn video has become more widely adopted, data management and storage processes have had to adapt to the increased demands. Currently, there are a number of manual steps for officers to complete when using a body-worn video solution, including switching on the camera as well as uploading and tagging the footage into a data management system.
The body-worn camera’s integration with Pronto via CommandCentral Vault eliminates these manual steps. GPS-enabled cameras capture location data and automatically sync with recorded details on the Pronto device. Full integration of these solutions means that when the camera footage is uploaded into CommandCentral Vault, it is tagged automatically.
Vehicle licensing images integration with Pronto was a critical benefit of a recent pilot that began in mid-August with Surrey and Sussex Police in the U.K. It allowed officers access to driver’s license images at the roadside, helping them quickly identify whom officers had stopped for traffic offences such as uninsured vehicles or speeding violations. With the goal of breaking down silos between different organizations’ systems, the trial reduced the time taken to identify a driver, once stopped, from 16 minutes to just 5 minutes, through the images supplied from the license database. More than 1,400 images were accessed during the 12 week trial which is now expanding to more officers throughout the force.
