National police force rolls out Motorola BWV

The General Inspectorate for the Romanian Police is deploying 12,000 Motorola Solutions body-worn cameras, as well as its VideoManager software.

According to the company, its VB400 camera will “improve the safety of both the police and the public, and enhance the accountability of their frontline police forces.” The device includes a range of functionality, including WiFi streaming and Bluetooth sensor monitoring.

Speaking of the roll-out, chief quaestor of police Liviu Vasilescu said: “The safety of the public and our officers across Romania continues to be of paramount importance. These body-worn cameras allow us to continue to protect and serve the Romanian public in the safest and most efficient way.”

Motorola Solutions’ regional vice president of Europe, Michael Kaae, said: “We are extremely proud that the Ministry of Interior and the Romanian Police continue to see Motorola Solutions as a trusted partner. By harnessing the benefits of body-worn cameras, Romanian Police forces can make their operations substantially more efficient and increase security for citizens.”

The contract follows the Inspectorate’s 2018 decision to roll-out 10,000 Motorola MTP3550 TETRA radios. The Romanian Police serves a population of over 22 million.
