Deployment of Axon's technology follows robust field trial by Canadian police force
FREDERICTON, New Brunswick and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz, July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., a subsidiary of Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, and Fredericton Police Force (FPF) today announced that FPF will deploy six Axon Body 2 cameras, four Axon Interview camera systems, and 105 licenses for Axon's cloud-based digital evidence management solution, Evidence.com. The order was received in the second quarter of 2018 and will roll out in multiple phases.
FPF's deployment of Axon technology follows a robust pilot program which commenced in March, 2017. The pilot program, which included Axon Body 2 cameras and Evidence.com services, was designed to improve how the agency captured, stored and managed their digital evidence in the field.
"The ability to handle very large amounts of video data continues to be a priority for the Fredericton Police Force," says Fredericton Police Force's Deputy Chief Martin Gaudet. "Having trialed Axon's Evidence.com cloud-based solution for the past year, we are confident in this streamlined approach to digital evidence management. We believe that by being equipped with cutting-edge technology, we can better serve and protect our community."
"Fredericton Police let us know from the beginning that a major priority was the ability to securely store and manage digital evidence," says Axon's Managing Director, Canada & Latin America, Vishal Dhir. "We are proud to see that, after a Request for Information and comprehensive trial of our technology, FPF concluded Axon is the best cloud-based platform for managing their digital evidence."
