Axon and DJI Announce Drone Partnership to Strengthen Law Enforcement Tools for Public Safety
More than 900 American public safety agencies use drones to improve officer safety, support tactical actions, reconstruct traffic collisions, support public safety at large events and perform search-and-rescue missions. At least 130 people around the world have been rescued from peril by drones, proving their value in life-or-death situations.
The Axon Air program allows law enforcement agencies to purchase drones from a trusted partner and links DJI's drone technology with Axon's connected data network and Evidence.com services – the same platform that more than 200,000 public safety professionals use today. Evidence.com provides the same rigorous data management system, chain-of-custody controls and security protocols that law enforcement agencies rely on to preserve and protect data from body cameras and in-car video systems. Within Evidence.com the integrity of drone videos is preserved for the protection of police agencies and the public they serve. Drones currently available for sale through the Axon Air program include: Phantom 4 Pro, Inspire 1, and Matrice 210.
"As the requirements and demands of unmanned aircraft programs grow, Axon is partnering with agencies to build out solutions that meet the complexities and requirements of public safety," says Axon's EVP of Worldwide Products,
"DJI's partnership with Axon allows law enforcement agencies to add drone capabilities and data services through the same trusted provider they rely on for the tools, data and support they need to do their jobs safely and effectively," said
Axon will partner with public safety agencies to identify the solutions that meet the demands of their communities and will bring drone video into the Axon Network of people, devices and apps. Interested agencies should reach out to their Axon sales representatives to learn more about how they can adopt this technology today.
