Motorola locks up $17.3 million deal with Victoria Police Featured

Motorola Solutions is delivering new number plate recognition and in-car video technology to Victoria Police under a five-year, state-wide $17.3 million managed services contract.

The high-resolution, cloud-based Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology enables police to rapidly scan through thousands of vehicle number plates to identify dangerous and unauthorised drivers in real time.

The technology will also help police detect stolen and unregistered vehicles and crack down on offences, including traffic violations and speeding.

Under the contract, Motorola will fit out 220 highway patrol vehicles with the technology.

The solution will help increase protection and accountability for interactions between police and the public through the collection of high-quality video and audio recordings that can be submitted as evidence in court.

The technology is claimed to be vital to achieving Victoria Police’s goals outlined in Towards Zero, the Victorian Government’s plan to make roads safer while striving for zero deaths on Victorian roads.

Motorola says the mobile number plate program will complement other systems being used by Victoria Police, including its BlueConnect Mobile Technology program.

Motorola Solutions vice-president and managing director Steve Crutchfield said fresh and reliable number plate data provided public safety agencies with valuable insights into road user behaviour.

“By combining ANPR detection with in-car video, this solution will provide high-quality visual and audio corroboration of incidents and offences witnessed by police. Solutions like this have been proven to increase accountability and even make individuals modify their behaviour when they know they are being filmed, contributing to greater safety for all road users and police officers," he said.

Crutchfield said the agreement with Motorola Solutions gave Victoria Police the flexibility to add enhancements to the program over time as vehicle and video standards and technologies matured.

In addition to the high-resolution number plate technology, Motorola Solutions manages the networks that provide Victoria Police with mission-critical radio communications and narrowband data services – and a mobility managed service to increase situational awareness, safety and productivity for police officers on the front line with a purpose-built mobility application to help officers manage their daily workflows.
