Motorola lends a hand to Victoria Police


Motorola Solutions has participated in fund raising events to help increase awareness of the risks faced by Victoria Police officers and to honour officers killed in the line of duty.

Motorola employees helped raise funds and supported the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation as the company marked its 50th anniversary in Australia and 90th anniversary globally.

Motorola Solutions' charitable arm, The Motorola Solutions Foundation, also donated US$5000 to support Blue Ribbon's “valuable community health and wellbeing programs including the provision of life-saving medical equipment for hospitals in Melbourne”.

Motorola Solutions vice-president and managing director Steve Crutchfield said it was an honour for Australian employees to support a cause so closely connected to Motorola Solutions' work.

"Motorola Solutions has supported Victoria Police over many decades by providing mission-critical communications technologies that its officers depend on each day," he said.

"It was a very special experience for our employees to support the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation's annual day and to honour the sacrifice of officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

"We sincerely value the commitment of all Victoria Police officers and now feel even closer to the work they do each day to protect and serve our community."
