Modis secures deal with WA Police Force in fight against COVID-19 Featured


IT solutions firm Modis Australia has joined forces with the Western Australian Police Force helping it to leverage a new technological platform to help slow the spread of COVID-19 across the state, following the declaration of a state of emergency.

Under the deal, Modis has worked with the WA police on the on development of the OneForce Locate mobile application which is now a key component of the state’s COVID-19 response and has been rapidly adopted by almost 4,000 frontline police officers.

Acting Inspector State Emergency Coordination Directorate, Darren Henstock said the impact of OneForce Locate on policing operations has been transformational.

“The ability to clearly locate and now communicate directly by either message, audio or video call with our staff in the field has been a game changer. The nature of the police response to the COVID-19 pandemic means that overview of officer location has become essential for planning, tracking and welfare”.

Leveraging Microsoft Azure cloud technologies, OneForce Locate provides real-time monitoring of officer locations to co-ordinate state and local operations, including enforcement of border controls during the pandemic.

Modis says OneForce Locate meets the stringent security requirements of the WA Police Force, combining an Apple iOS mobile app, a desktop app, a web app and an array of secure services hosted in the Microsoft Azure cloud.

CEO of Modis Australia, Rafael Moyano said “developing solutions designed to meet real-world, complex and large-scale business and technology challenges is a major area of expertise for the firm”.

“The Western Australia Police Force is responsible for policing the largest single police jurisdiction in the world so real-time connection between on-duty officers and key decision-makers is paramount. We are proud to support WA Police Officers and positively impact both public and officer safety across the state during this unprecedented time,” Moyano said.

Modis says OneForce Locate has numerous capabilities to help the WA Police Force control the spread of COVID-19, citing, for example, that the platform has the ability to broadcast targeted notifications to officers’ mobile devices to disseminate critical information quickly and reliably.

“The application can also alert officers when they are entering a red zone, record all officer movements for analysis and identify the real-time status of officers, including officers quarantined for COVID-19,” concluded Modis.
