The District Court Lübeck, improves staff safety


Lübeck is a city in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany, and one of its major ports. The District Court of Lübeck is responsible for a wide range of enforcement matters including serious criminal and civil cases, plus appeals and complaints from local district courts.

The Need
The courts in Lübeck attract large visitor numbers, and concerns have been raised regarding the how to ensure the continued safety of both their employees and visitors.

The Solution 
Multitone Germany was asked to review, plan and implement a comprehensive personal security system, to cover three locations in Lübeck.  Multitone recommended its patented personal security system EkoTek®, with the installation of 400 radio cells to create the necessary staff protection. This was further enhanced by linking the 3 properties through a series of LAN repeaters, which were networked into the Courts’ own LAN.

Staff now have access to belt or pocket worn user-friendly mobile emergency alarm devices, plus strategically placed fixed emergency call points. Within seconds of an alarm, the position of the guards is transferred to colleagues with other EkoTek mobile devices, plus a central office or even escalated to external services.

The Result
The result is a solution that ensures the security and delivery of time-critical emergency messages to the courts staff and security guards.  Assistance can now be initiated immediately with responders directed to alarm location.
