Roll-out includes 2,300 Motorola Solutions Si500 Video Speaker Microphones with integrated body-worn video camera to help protect law enforcement officers and citizens and aid in solving crimes
IDSTEIN, Germany – February 28, 2019 – Motorola Solutions will equip the German federal police with its Si500 Video Speaker Microphone and a digital evidence management software solution. The technology will help law enforcement officers and citizens to be better protected and will improve incident investigations. The Motorola Solutions Si500 combines a body-worn video camera, a remote speaker microphone that connects to the officer’s two-way radio and a smart interface in a single device, reducing the load police officers have to carry when on patrol. As part of the roll-out, 2,300 Motorola Solutions Si500 devices will be delivered by the end of 2020. They will complement the Motorola Solutions TETRA digital two-way radios solutions that are already being used by the German federal police.
The Motorola Solutions body-worn video cameras are easy to use and provide reliable voice communications, video and audio recording as well as image capture. Data will be securely stored in a digital evidence management system, keeping the chain of evidence intact from capture to courtroom.
“Law enforcement officers are facing increasing challenges today to ensure the safety of citizens. With our globally proven, secure and reliable communication solutions we support public safety organisations to be their best in the moments that matter,” said Axel Kukuk, Germany country manager, Motorola Solutions. “Our Si500 Video Speaker Microphone with integrated body-worn camera provides a best-in-class solution to tackle these challenges and increase the safety of first responders and citizens.”
