Schleswig-Holstein is the first federal state in Germany to equip its entire police force with the new Motorola Solutions’ MTP6000 radio series.

Motorola Solutions has been selected in the latest tender issued by the Central Procurement Office of Schleswig-Holstein AöR (GMSH – Gebäudemanagement Schleswig-Holstein) to provide new mission-critical radio solutions for their police. Within the framework of the contract, Motorola Solutions will supply 4,200 MTP6650 TETRA portable two-way radios, making Schleswig-Holstein the first federal state in Germany to equip all their police with the latest generation of Motorola Solutions’ TETRA radios. They especially stand out due to enhanced coverage and receiver sensitivity, built-in Bluetooth® 4.1 wireless technology, IP68 dust and water ingress protection as well as enhanced audio.
