States of Jersey Police Gets SMARTer with new mobile policing applications

  • Motorola Solutions’ suite of mobile policing applications to save police force time and money, and allow officers to spend more time in the community
  • Rollout supports the States of Jersey’s digital policing initiative for improved and efficient police work through the use of advanced technologies

London, England – April 25, 2018 – States of Jersey Police will deploy Motorola Solutions’ Pronto mobile solution as part of the force’s new digital policing initiative, SMARTpolice. The three year contract will allow police officers to greatly improve efficiency by replacing paperwork activities with automated mobile processes.

Pronto is built for police forces to replace inefficient paper-based activities such as witness statements, Stop and Search, and Fixed Penalty Notices, with intuitive digital forms on mobile devices. It also provides mobile access to local and national databases for person and vehicle registration checks. It will serve as States of Jersey Police’s mobile platform for building a more efficient and effective mobile police force.

States of Jersey’s SMARTpolice project will enable the force to more effectively address crime, and more efficiently serve and protect the local community while reducing overall costs and budget.

States of Jersey Police is the first Pronto deployment outside mainland UK, where the mobile suite of policing apps is already used by 20 forces. Within these forces, Pronto holds a proven track record of generating more meaningful police engagement, simple and higher quality processes, improved collaboration as well as substantial cost reductions

One Pronto-enabled force has made an estimated £7 million in efficiency savings through this modernisation of its processes, as well reducing its officers’ admin time by two hours per shift. Another force’s utilisation of biometric applications allows its officers to run fingerprint checks against national database records in less than a minute while in the field.

“Our goal was to get officers to spend more time out in the community, and less time with paperwork at the police station,” said Deputy Chief Officer Julian Blazeby, States of Jersey Police. “With Motorola Solutions we believe we have found a partner with proven experience in public safety mobile solutions and high flexibility in solving for our specific needs.”

“We are proud to partner with States of Jersey on the mission of digitising police work,” said Phil Jefferson, vice president for Western Europe and North Africa, and Country Manager UK and Ireland, Motorola Solutions. “This deployment demonstrates Pronto’s flexibility as a platform supporting Police forces of different sizes and needs.”
