‘The biggest policing jurisdiction in the world’: Bringing the Starlink satellite internet system to WA Police
With an area of around 2,527,013 square kilometres (975,685 sq miles), Western Australia Police Force (WAPOL) is the largest policing jurisdiction in the world. Providing reliable network coverage across that geography has historically been challenging, particularly in the most remote areas of the force.
Historically, permanent network coverage has only been possible across around a quarter of the State. WAPOL’s introduction of satellite internet system Starlink will mean that officers will have a much more reliable, cost-effective and scalable means of communication in areas where traditional radio and phone networks have been unreliable or non-existent due to the remoteness of the areas that officers are working in.
Commander Jodie Pearson leads Western Australia Police Force’s (WAPOL’s) introduction of Starlink to deliver “Anywhere Communications”. On the day when she is briefing forces from across Australia on this new initiative, she also briefs PolicingTV on this ground-breaking work, with her colleague, Brett Pearson providing further technical details.
Commander Pearson would be pleased to provide other policing jurisdictions worldwide with a briefing on WAPOL’s world-leading work in this area.
