ROK Homeland Security software to be deployed with immediate effect to law enforcement agencies in South America in a contract valued, initially, in excess of USD $10 million
ROK Global PLC, the mobile, web and industrial technology, applications and services company, has today announced it has signed a multi-million dollar agreement for the deployment of its ROK Homeland Security (RHS) software into South America, beginning immediately.
“While we are unable to report exact details as to the scale and scope of this agreement for confidential security reasons, we are able to report the contract value is in excess of USD $10 million, initially, with a great deal of growth potential thereafter.” Said Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK.
ROK Homeland Security is a mobile phone-based service, developed by ROK, which provides real-time, secure technologies to assist law enforcement officers in the gathering and management of information in a variety of formats including encrypted data based communications and improved spatial awareness capabilities.
RHS has been specifically designed for use in counter-terrorism operations, criminal investigations, counter-narcotic operations, physical security, evidence-gathering and field communications.
“This is a most significant development for our ROK Homeland Security software as it’s been a long time coming, following a process of intense due diligence, and after the successful trials and deployments of RHS in the United States, which further proves the effectiveness of RHS in helping, supporting and assisting law enforcement activities.” Added Kendrick.
ROK Global PLC was co-founded by US Billionaire John Paul DeJoria and UK-based serial technology-specialist entrepreneur, Jonathan Kendrick.
In addition to being co-founder of ROK, John Paul DeJoria is Chairman and CEO of John Paul Mitchell Systems and is also co-founder of Patron Tequila, the world’s leading premium tequila brand.
