Blackberry AtHoc Coordinates The UK’s Civil Nuclear Constabulary

BlackBerry AtHoc Civil Nuclear Constabulary

How BlackBerry AtHoc Alert is helping UK’s Civil Nuclear Constabulary

For many, the idea of a Blackberry is a thing of the past. Once an absolute superstar, it has for millions become nothing more than a relic from days long past. Something that someday you may tell your grandchildren about when speaking about things “back in the day.” While Android-powered phones will still be around for the foreseeable future along with new iterations of Apple’s iPhone, for others, they may not know that the Blackberry even existed.

That is not the case with the UK’s Civil Nuclear Constabulary. While the Ministry of Defence is largely responsible for the security of sites in the United Kingdom where nuclear materials and weapons are stored, the Civil Nuclear Constabulary also provides the kingdom with a means of securing materials in the event of an emergency by providing trained firearms officers to fill in the gaps.

Blackberry AtHoc Adding To Coordination

“First and foremost, our organizational responsibility is to protect nuclear material from security threats, both in-transit, and in-situation,” explains Joseph Shearer-Rust, Resilience Officer at CNC. “We’re also required by regulators to always keep a certain number of active officers at each site.”

And the United Kingdom is using Blackberry AtHoc to power its Civil Nuclear Constabulary. The kingdom has found that it works and is keeping the Canadian company in business.

“We can deploy with much shorter notice, meaning our officers are able to complete their mission much faster, and we don’t need to worry about setting aside additional resources until it’s absolutely necessary,” Shearer-Rust explained. “The AtHoc platform has effectively paid for itself at this point.”

The United Kingdom and its former place as a colonizing powerhouse, and reasonably lax immigration as made it a natural target of extremists targeting of the nation disproportionately

Rapid response

“With everyone working remotely, BlackBerry AtHoc has proved to be an invaluable tool both in overtime management and connectivity,” said Shearer-Rust. “We’ve been using it internally to rapidly communicate essential updates to our workforce, while our Assistant Chief Constable has used to it ensure police officers and staff are immediately updated when there are important changes to national policy and guidance. People quickly saw the value of the platform – following the first message, our signup rate went from 80% to nearly 100% over the span of a few days.”

Blackberry is doing its best to keep the United Kingdom safe, with this software solution.
