B-APCO 2016 22-23 MARCH, TELFORD, UK
For more than 20 years British APCO has been the go to forum for public safety and civil contingencies communications. As we look toward the delivery of the U.K.’s Emergency Services Network (ESN) the role of British APCO, as a place to exchange information, ideas and experiences, has never been so relevant, or important to the future development of communications for our police, fire and rescue, and ambulance services. Motorola Solutions has been placed at the heart of the ESMCP, and in turn our support of British APCO is part of a wider endeavour to continue a close association with all users of mission-critical communications in this country, to do best by them as the complete end-to-end provider of services for ESN.
Motorola Solutions represents a complete response to public safety users’ needs - from devices to software applications, vehicle installation to control room solutions and the support required to offer a secure and smooth evolution path for the next-generation ESN. Putting our customers and their challenges as our first priority we will have a business unit dedicated to the management and operation of ESN. Motorola Solutions’ ESN Service Desk will be staffed 24/7 by highly-trained personnel who intimately understand the roles and needs of users and the services they require to focus on the core mission of Public Safety. Assisting with the orderly migration of users to ESN, this team will be the gate-keeper of change. They will assure our mission critical environment is protected at all times through best practice, industry-leading policies and processes.
Motorola Solutions has been a relied upon communications partner to the British emergency services community for more than 45 years and we intend to be there for every officer and crew member for many more to come
During the event please come and see us and Airwave at stand C5 and of course, don't miss our conference speakers:

From reacting and responding to predicting and preventing, a transformation is happening in public safety. Handling the huge increase in available data with advanced analytics to predict where crimes may erupt, technology is taking police beyond basic crime mapping. By combining surveillance, local intelligence and real-time investigative tools, agencies are multiplying their capabilities and mitigating risks.
'The Connected Police Officer' is a great example of how this comes together for the officer on the street. This is always a popular subject for journalists and end users at events and exhibitions. But there's much more to it than just what the public sees.
TETRA-APPLICATIONS.com interviewed Tunde Williams about this at the recent PMRExpo. What did Tunde have to say?
'We're not going away from mission critical communications, mission critical communications will always be central to public safety. You can't get away from having a reliable communication link, whether that is between first responders and connecting the control room to the front line. That will always be there.'
So what's new? 'What we're seeing more is the need to optimise how resources are deployed and that really comes down to agencies trying to be more proactive in how they manage incidents. So, rather than focusing on responding to incidents what we are seeing this focus on mission critical intelligence which is enabling agencies to be more pro-active, to predict and potentially to prevent a crime from happening...
