Brighton BCRP launch BlackBerry Messenger Enterprise
The Brighton and Hove BCRP have launched a secure messenging service for its members through BlackBerry Messenger Enterprise. Complementing the digital radio system, members can now exchange intelligence and images using the secure messaging service Blackberry Messenger Enterprise [BBME].
Unlike WhatsApp, which has been used extensively in the past, the new messaging service software purchased by the BCRP is fully compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force on 25 May 2018.
The service is available to members at no extra cost and is a welcome addition to the membership package which includes a brand new £100,000 digital radio network, a state-of-the- art password protected website providing accurate intelligence and up-to-date images of all offenders subject to exclusion and Criminal Behaviour Orders [CBOs], a mobile app for Apple and Android phones which allows access to intelligence via your smart phone, free crime reduction training and regular intelligence sharing meetings.
