LONDON – November 30, 2022 – Motorola Solutions today announced that Wiltshire Police in the UK will provide its frontline police officers with the digital policing application Pronto, which integrates critical information from multiple police databases. This advanced mobile policing solution enables officers to efficiently and accurately complete administrative tasks in the field to maximise the time spent in their communities.
Surrounded by the counties of Berkshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Somerset, Wiltshire Police covers the unitary authorities of Wiltshire and Swindon, an area of almost 3,500 sq km. The deployment of the new Pronto application is aligned with the goals of Wiltshire’s Police and Crime Plan 2022–2025 to provide its more than 2,000 officers and staff with appropriate technology tools to help better serve and engage with its population of more than 700,000 residents.
With Pronto, officers use their mobile devices to efficiently capture incident details, such as those related to road collisions and traffic infringements, rather than traditional paper notebooks. Reports are shared securely with back office systems, while officers remain in the field. Data and images are auto-populated into relevant fields across multiple policing applications and forms to eliminate duplication, improve data consistency and better comply with criminal justice requirements.
“Developed in Scotland, Pronto has become the one of the most widely deployed mobile policing applications in Great Britain, trusted by more than 66,000 users,” said Fergus Mayne, country manager U.K. and Ireland at Motorola Solutions. “The modernisation of work processes has allowed the country’s police forces to cut down on administrative and travel times, saving an average of two hours per officer per shift allowing police officers to spend more time in their communities.”
