Axon Announces Body-Worn Camera Partnership with Private Security Company Cancom

15 Jan 2021

Cancom Security plans to roll out Axon Body 3 cameras to over 100 guards with plans to expand in 2021

TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2021 /CNW/ -- Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected public safety technologies, and its subsidiary Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., today announced that Cancom Security Inc. joined the Axon network by purchasing Axon Body 3 (AB3) cameras and licenses to the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence.

With over 1,200 security guards nationally and 50+ years of management experience within the private security and law enforcement industry, Cancom is one of the first security companies to start equipping security guards with body cameras in the Ontario region with plans to add more in 2021. Now, with Axon Evidence, the industry's only scalable solution that allows agencies to share evidence, Cancom will be able to quickly share data with frequent collaborators such as prosecutors, public defenders, and law enforcement agencies.

"Selecting Axon as our partner and rolling out the AB3 to our frontline guards demonstrates our on-going commitment to further advancing the private sectors position while aligning ourselves to support our local police services with seamless support in evidence retention, gathering and continuity," says Cancom's Founder and CEO Ron Wells. "More specifically, leveraging this emerging technology is a valuable training tool to teach our security guards appropriate conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques while holding them accountable to provide a best in class service to our clients."

"We are excited to partner with Cancom as they lead the way with an implementation of connected body cameras and innovative technology for the private sector," says Vishal Dhir, Axon's Managing Director, Canada & Latin America. "By taking full advantage of the Axon network, Cancom is creating a seamless partnership between private security and law enforcement for sharing evidence to ensure transparency and continuity."
