Axon Citizen is new a public safety portal that allows community members to submit evidence directly to law enforcement agencies for open crime cases. Axon says Citizen accelerates the review of video evidence so officers can spend “more time solving the crime and less time processing mass amounts of data.”
There are two ways in which officers can solicit help from the community: one-on-one between an officer and the citizen; or with a community-wide broadcast requesting information from the public on a specific crime. The product is currently only available in English-speaking Canadian cities. Abbotsford Police Department in B.C. is one of the agencies conducting trials of Axon Citizen.
