Challenge

Communication for police officers needs to be as fast and mobile as the emergency response service they provide.

Solution

The SSP -BA armed its officers with approximately 600 BlackBerry® smartphones to help in its fight against crime. The department also deployed Police Mobility in Operations, a mobile application from Tecnew Informática Ltda., on the BlackBerry smartphone. The application is designed to provide mobile access to databases and back-end records systems and allows officers to access up-to-date information about people, vehicles, drivers and criminal backgrounds from their BlackBerry smartphones.

Benefits

  • Mobile access to police databases
  • Quicker GPS information related to officer locations
  • Better communication between police officers
  • More secure access to classified information
