REGION OF PEEL, ONTARIO – Peel Regional Police is teaming up with Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) to deploy mission critical end-to-end software and video solutions to enhance officer and community safety and wellbeing for the nearly 1.4 million residents and visitors of the cities of Brampton, Mississauga, and at Pearson International Airport.

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 calls for help.”
The public safety technology ecosystem from Motorola Solutions will include:
- Vesta® Next Generation (NG) 9-1-1 for emergency call taking
- PremierOne® Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) for the capture and real-time distribution of information from 9-1-1 calls to responding officers
- CommandCentral Aware to aggregate data and video information for better situational awareness
