Los Angeles Law Enforcement Backs BlackBerry 10

The smartphone shootout for supremacy has been won among local Los Angeles, California law enforcement.

This week, BlackBerry announced that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) is deploying BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

The largest sheriff’s department in the nation has officially become a BlackBerry-based law enforcement department.

“Technology is moving fast, and the BlackBerry 10 platform is a viable secure platform that can help us keep up,” explained Commander Scott Edson of the Technical Services Division. “I have personally tested devices on many smartphone operating systems and I think the BlackBerry 10 platform is a homerun. It’s very secure right out of the box, a great benefit to government and business, and is designed to make your various communication methods more efficient.”

The smartphone maker says that the combination of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and BlackBerry Balance technology gives employees the functionality and rich user experience they want, without compromising security.

“BlackBerry Balance offers our customers the most seamless and user friendly way to satisfy both user and corporate needs without compromising on either,” asserts Richard Piasentin, Vice President and Managing Director for the U.S. at BlackBerry. “We’re pleased to provide innovative solutions to our customers – like BlackBerry Balance – to enable organizations to protect critical content and applications, while letting their users get the most out of their smartphone.”
