Some 40 Motorola Solutions personnel helped raise funds last week for Blue Ribbon Day – the annual fundraising event for the Victoria Police Foundation – collecting donations at three of Melbourne’s main railway stations.

Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Con Balaskas said it was an honour to support the event and a cause so closely connected to the critical comms specialist’s focus.

“Our work in developing mission-critical communications technologies brings us close to our customers, but events like these really highlight the important contribution that first responders make to protect our community,” he said.

“We sincerely value the sacrifice and commitment of all police officers in protecting and serving our community and our employees were delighted to play their part for a valuable cause.”
