Axon offers one year of free Evidence.com licenses, body cams, apps
Axon, a provider of connected law enforcement technologies, has announced it will extend its free cloud-based evidence management and body camera trial program to include all Canadian police agencies. The program, which was originally launched in the United States in April 2017, provides Evidence.com usage, body-worn cameras, training, and supporting hardware free of charge for up to one year to any interested agency.
By offering an interoperable platform, Evidence.com helps law enforcement and justice agencies by reducing the need for “unwieldy processes associated with sharing information on CDs, DVDs and other methods of in-house data storage,” Axon says. Evidence.com’s workflow improvements — like automatic redaction, on-demand transcription, and easy case and evidence sharing — create a digital evidence ecosystem that lets agencies save on administrative time and storage costs.
Several Canadian agencies have already begun to use Axon’s technologies, while many others are starting pilots, the company notes. Durham Regional Police Service will pilot Axon Body 2 cameras with approximately 80 officers for a one-year period.
“Axon has a secure, easy-to-use solution that helps reduce manual tasks, prevent data silos, and promote efficiency,” said Axon CEO and co-founder Rick Smith. “When we say ‘get to the truth faster,’ this is exactly what we mean — that, given the chance to utilize this platform, agencies will see an immediate transformation in the way they manage digital evidence. It’s time to make sure that everyone has that chance.”
By streamlining “virtually all aspects of the criminal justice process”, from evidence capture to sharing with Crown prosecutors for trial, Axon says its solution helps increase convictions while decreasing time to trial.
