Advanced Crime Analytics Means Bad News for Criminals

Motorola Solutions, Wynyard Group partner on big data analysis to help solve crimes faster, more efficiently

· Wynyard Group software helps identify criminal patterns and find connections in different data sources such as criminal databases and case files in minutes rather than days

· Integration of Wynyard Group’s software into Motorola Solutions’ Intelligence-Led Public Safety platform enables agencies of all sizes to share data and solve crime with fewer resources

SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS AND AUCKLAND – June 11, 2015 – Increased data from video, social media and other sources has public safety turning to advanced technology to help make data actionable for faster-than-ever crime detection, prevention and resolution. Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) is partnering with Wynyard Group (NZX:WYN) to integrate next-generation crime analytics to help law enforcement agencies connect disparate data sources such as criminal history, social media networks, property records, field notes and other types of evidence. The software helps identify criminal patterns and explore relationships by analyzing data in minutes rather than days, freeing up agency resources to investigate leads and solve cases.

Earlier this year, Motorola Solutions acquired PublicEngines and its “CommandCentral Predictive” and “CommandCentral Analytics” products to expand its innovative Smart Public Safety Solutions. The Wynyard Group software enhances CommandCentral by connecting the dots between multiple databases and evidence libraries to help investigators quickly prevent and solve crime.

“The acquisitions, partnerships and investments Motorola Solutions continues to make this year are significantly strengthening our customers’ ability to prevent, detect and solve crimes with more information at their fingertips than ever before,” said Bob Schassler, executive vice president, Motorola Solutions. “Motorola Solutions’ Smart Public Safety Solutions and Wynyard Group’s analytics software will help public safety quickly gain actionable intelligence from an increasing volume of available data.”

Public safety agencies of all sizes will be able to do more with less by upgrading their intelligence and investigative capabilities at a fraction of the cost with this “Software as a Service” (SaaS) solution. Motorola Solutions’ Intelligence-Led Public Safety platform makes it fast and easy for agencies to share data regionally or nationally to help deter crimes that extend across jurisdictions.

“Wynyard Group provides advanced crime analytics solutions to national security and large law enforcement agencies around the world,” said Craig Richardson, chief executive officer, Wynyard Group. “The partnership with Motorola Solutions creates new capabilities to help law enforcement identify persons, relationships and events of interest and provide a single view of the criminal environment to help stop criminals and protect victims.”
