Frontline officers with Surrey Police and Sussex Police are using Motorola Solutions’ Pronto to gain immediate access to INTERPOL. This source of intelligence provides officers with important information to protect national security and enable daily productivity gains.
Pronto is the most widely deployed mobile policing solution in the UK, improving public safety through features that enhance situational awareness including mobile biometrics and federated searches. The new functionality will equip 4,500 police officers across both forces with the INTERPOL database at their fingertips, ensuring instant and secure access to millions of international records including warrants, stolen property and threats related to weapons.
“Pronto has been a part of the digitalisation of our police force since 2009,” said Amber Kingshott, Mobile Development Manager, Surrey Police. “With access to INTERPOL, our officers no longer need to call a colleague or return to a police station to run a search, saving minutes in everyday operations and emergency situations.”
“It takes an average of 1.2 seconds to run a query through the INTERPOL database using our mobile device,” added Steven Boniface, Detective Chief Superintendent, Sussex Police. “Officers can run a search from any location at any time, leveraging INTERPOL’s vital source of intelligence to increase safety for themselves and the British public.”Click below to share this article
