Region of Peel – Peel Regional Police is excited to announce their recently expanded partnership with Motorola Solutions to deploy an innovative public safety technology platform to enhance community safety within the Region of Peel.

This partnership demonstrates another significant milestone in our Digital Officer Transformation Program, which seeks to improve the interoperability of several critical systems while ensuring that our frontline members are provided with the most impactful technology tools available to do their jobs. The partnership builds upon the existing efforts that PRP and Motorola Solutions have in relation to the public safety radio system and the innovative work to build a resilient and reliable LTE data communications network for first responders. This next advancement will modernize PRP’s public safety and emergency communication workflow by focusing on the ability to communicate critical information, in all formats available, to first responders in times of need.

“Policing continues to become more complex and this technology is essential to providing adaptive and strategic services in times of emergency,” said Chief Nishan Duraiappah, Peel Regional Police. “By implementing their integrated software technologies, we will be able to ensure that all pertinent information for an active case is front-and-center as our team, including our community partners, responds to the community’s needs. We are grateful to our Police Services Board for supporting this initiative and others that will advance our organization with respect to innovation and technology.”

Peel Regional Police will be the first police service in Canada to implement Motorola Solutions’ public safety ecosystem. This interoperable ecosystem contains software offerings that will enhance processes and information flow in the areas of Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Next Generation – 9-1-1, Real-time Operations (RTOC) and video security and analytics solutions.
