Motorola said during this week’s Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials conference in Montreal that its Windows-based Digital Justice Solution Select (DJSS) would provide mid-sized public-safety agencies with “many of the same functional benefits” as those enjoyed by large agencies. The solution is designed to provide “fast and economical” deployment of computer-aided dispatch, records management and mobile data computing systems, the company said. Because the solution is Windows-based, standard, pre-configured options can be combined with a mission-critical configuration to meet the budget requirements of individual agencies, the company said. It is expected to be available “later this year,” according to Motorola.

In addition, Motorola announced a softswitch designed to provide interoperable communications between public-safety agencies using disparate radio systems and a mobile automated fingerprinting system that provides law enforcement personnel with remote access to fingerprints, facial images and criminal history records in real time at an incident scene.

The Soft Switch Radio Network is expandable, with capacity for more than 10,000 talk paths, is Internet Protocol-based and offers distributed control points, eliminating single points of failure.

The Mobile Automated Fingerprint Identification System is based on the company’s fingerprint solution that is used by law enforcement agencies in 37 countries. In addition to providing access to a department’s own databases, it also provides access to the National Crime Information Center and state departments of motor vehicles.

Finally, Motorola announced that it has signed an agreement with MeshNetworks that will allow Motorola to distribute MeshNetworks’ peer-to-peer mobile data system through Motorola’s sales force and reseller network.
