AUG. 16 ? Motorola Inc. announced Aug. 15 it will include advanced criminal investigation software tools made by ORION Scientific Systems in its law enforcement software suite.
Motorola's Law Enforcement Decision Support suite integrates data within departments, across agencies and between states to improve information sharing among law enforcement agencies. The company said the products help police solve more crimes, enhance officer safety and save time and money.
ORION of Irvine, Calif., produces law enforcement tools that enable the storage, retrieval and automatic distribution of investigative documents, crime reports, crime scene analyses, intelligence files, legal opinions, images and sound. ORION's tools are used in the U.S. intelligence community, Defense Department and state and local law enforcement agencies.
Now, Motorola of Schaumburg, Ill., will be able to include tools, such as ORION's gang tracking system and intelligence investigation applications, in its suite.
The deal positions ORION to work on some large state government projects worth millions, said Eric Zidenberg, vice president of the company's public safety division.
Eventually the two companies will combine their technologies into a seamless application, Zidenberg said.
