Stockholm, SWEDEN – The private service design and tech company Communications of CARL announced today that a new agreement for 2017 has been signed with the Swedish Police.
Since the beginning of 2017 the Swedish Police in Region North have been using CARL SML™ (Call and Rescue Link, Simple Mobile Locator) to locate smartphone callers in distress. After successful trials with the Swedish Police Region North and a proven solution used by the Swedish Maritime Administration (JRCC) for search and rescue operations for the past two years an agreement has now been reached.
CARL SML™ uses existing functionality in smartphones and together with the built-in GPS, web browser and an Internet connection a precise location can be determined. The upside of using the service is that there are no needs for any apps to be installed on the smartphone and it works worldwide.
– It is a fantastic tool that strengthens our capabilities to locate and save people in distress, says André Westberg at Swedish Police in Region North
CARL SML™ will not only locate the caller with better accuracy than other traditional systems, it offers new possibilities to guide the callers back to known landmarks or locations using real-time transmissions of their current location. With this functionality the Police can prevent a situation to become an emergency.
– This is a milestone for us and we are so happy that we now will be able to work together with the Police and contribute to a safer society and meet the public safety challenges ahead, says Peter Tisell CEO at Communications of CARL.
