Police officers in Paraná, Brazil, face major challenges in protecting borders, especially in environments where they face threats such as trafficking, smuggling and illegal deforestation.
To help combat these challenges, the Paraná Public Safety Secretariat is investing in advanced communications technology from Motorola Solutions to support its mission in delivering public safety and protecting its police officers and more than 11 million community members.
This significant technology deployment, across a sprawling 2,500 square kilometer area bordering Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, will move more than 17,000 police officers from older analogue technology to advanced digital radio communications, including in-field, deployable broadband capabilities.
“This technology investment represents a major milestone of ENAFRON – the Federal program to enhance communications across our borders. It will help our officers to provide enhanced protection as they protect border areas and uphold community safety wherever it is needed most,” said Wagner Mesquita, Public Safety Secretary from Paraná state.
Based on Motorola Solutions’ P25 radio technology, the system will give police officers in Paraná seamless, reliable and secure connectivity across thousands of kilometers statewide. Voice and data communication will be also expanded through Motorola Solutions’ LTE LXN 6000 solution, with the potential to introduce command drones in the future to protect remote borders from a distance.Click below to share this article
