The SOMA “Public Safety as a Service” (PSAAS) Platform features advanced technology and full configurability in a mobile-ready platform that will enable the Richmond International Airport Police to effectively secure facilities and protect over 4 million passengers and travelers that pass through it a year.

The Richmond International Airport becomes the first Transportation Agency in the nation to embrace the SOMA Platform giving them groundbreaking access to the SOMA ​applications that will streamline dispatch and operations for the Airport Police Department and Emergency Communications. ​

“SOMA has always worked with its agency partners to innovate platform features,” said Peter Quintas, Founder and CEO of SOMA Global. “Together with the Richmond International Airport, the SOMA Platform is expanding to provide innovative technology that is the first of its kind in the transportation marketplace.”

Using the SOMA Platform, the Richmond Airport Police Department and Emergency Communications will benefit from an integrated Platform experience, including:

  • SOMA HUB - The Hub allows for quick and easy searches across multiple feeds and various airport and passenger data sources.
  • SOMA Dispatch - Computer-aided dispatch for law enforcement, airport operations and response.
  • SOMA Records - Records management applications for incident-based reporting, and criminal data.
  • SOMA Mobile - Mobile dispatch for patrol and other airport first responders.

Interim Chief Matthew Tenney of the Richmond International Airport Police concurred that “The SOMA Platform will allow the Airport the ability to share criminal justice related data between the agencies within the Airport in a secure manner.
