Motorola announces several UK police contracts
Motorola announced that several United Kingdom police forces have selected its products for various deployments. According to Motorola, seven Scottish police departments have chosen its MTH800 TETRA “handportable terminal” for use on the United Kingdom’s Airwave public-safety communications network. In addition, four police departments in England—Kent Police, Northamptonshire Police, Norfolk Constabulary and the London-based Metropolitan Police Service—also will deploy the MTH800. The color display and integrated GPS capability were key selling points, Motorola said in a press release. To date, 11 of 12 U.K. police departments that have awarded handportable contracts this year have selected the MTH800, Motorola said.
