Experience What’s New at IACP
Motorola Solutions continues to lead the way in law enforcement technology. We are excited to showcase our newest additions to our public safety ecosystem:
Vigilant Investigative Suite: BallisticSearch™ & CrimeSearch™ – First within the suite, Vigilant BallisticSearch is a portable hardware and software solution that allows law enforcement personnel to capture, analyze and compare 2-D images of discharged fired cartridge casings (FCCs) onsite at crime scenes, so they can triage FCCs for identification of unique firearms and generate real-time investigative leads. Next, Vigilant CrimeSearch is a pattern crime mapping, data retrieval and analysis solution. It automates how agencies collect, associate, map and leverage law enforcement data, investigative information and forensic reporting results to advance criminal enforcement strategies and tactical operations. It also allows agencies to opt-in to share actionable information across jurisdictions to increase capabilities for detecting associations needed for investigative follow-up.
Avigilon Blue: Public-Private Video Sharing – Now law enforcement and citizens can work together to fight crime in their communities by utilizing video. By connecting Avigilon cameras and any third-party open platform cameras with Avigilon Blue, businesses can harness the power of intelligent video analytics. Avigilon Blue enables the viewing of live and recorded video from all connected cameras through a secure cloud platform. With Avigilon Blue, businesses can scrub recorded video from multiple cameras, then share any video with law enforcement via their community video programs.
CommandCentral Software – Experience our CommandCentral Software Suite, the first and only end-to-end public safety software portfolio with solutions from call to case closure. First, showcasing our Incident Awareness solutions, from NG911 to call taking solutions. Second, our Incident Management solutions, demoing the collaboration between CommandCentral Aware and our CAD Solutions (Spillman Flex & PremierOne). And lastly, Post-Incident Resolutions solutions, showcasing the seamless integration between CommandCentral Vault, Records, Analytics and Community Engagement technology.
