The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce their new partnership with Motorola Solutions – Airbus DS Communications. Today, we launched our new VESTA® NG9-1-1 system which will provide our dispatch center with the most up-to-date technology available to help them manage emergencies faster and more efficiently.
With 80 percent of today’s 9-1-1 calls being placed by wireless phones, our previous 9-1-1 system was insufficient in its ability to locate those devices accurately. VESTA® 9-1-1 which has integrated RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse, our dispatch center now has the ability to pinpoint wireless caller’s locations much more quickly and accurately. The technology transmits precise, device-based hybrid locations from smartphones directly to the VESTA® 9-1-1 console by using all available sensors on modern smartphone devices – including GPS, WiFi Access Points, bluetooth beacons, and barometric pressure sensors.
With our partnership with Airbus DS Communications’ VESTA® 9-1-1 system and their Map Local module, the Sheriff’s Office will be able to locate those in need faster than ever before. And when help is needed, seconds count!
