The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) has implemented a $26 million Project 25 communications system from Motorola Solutions. LVMPD also signed an 11-year, $31 million lifecycle management and support services agreement for systems and equipment.

More than 5,000 APX two-way radios have been deployed to LVMPD officers, Clark County detention officers and officers in the city of Mesquite, Nevada, who have recently joined the network. The system includes radio dispatch consoles and data capabilities for radio fleet management.

LVMPD also implemented Motorola PremierOne records management software for in-house personnel and field reporting. Additionally they plan to upgrade their current Motorola Solutions computer aided dispatch (CAD) system to PremierOne CAD and Mobile to help streamline their end-to-end public safety workflows.

Staff includes more than 2,400 police officers plus 750 correctional officers operating the Clark County Detention Center.
