VA to manage program with Axon's digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence, which is FedRAMP-authorized to securely store government data and digital evidence
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (Nasdaq: AXON), the global public safety technology leader, today announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Police intends to deploy Axon Fleet 3 in-car cameras with Axon's AI-powered automated license plate reader (ALPR) technology and Axon Body 3 cameras to VA police officers across all Veterans Integrated Services Networks (VISNs).
Additionally, VA will leverage Axon's real-time situational awareness software, Axon Respond, and Axon's digital evidence management system, Axon Evidence, which is a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorized platform.

"By providing our police officers, detectives and special agents with real time visibility and situational awareness, we ensure a safe environment for our Veterans across the healthcare system."
This technology will enable faster response times, improve transparency and strengthen officer performance and safety. Digital evidence collected by VA officers will be securely stored and managed in Axon Evidence, which is authorized by FedRAMP. This authorization confirms that Axon's cloud storage has been reviewed and approved by the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the General Services Administration. FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies, with an emphasis on security and protection of federal information.
