Axon and its subsidiary Axon Public Safety Canada Inc. have announced that Kativik Regional Police Force (KRPF) has joined the Axon network with the purchase of Axon Body 2 cameras and licenses to the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence.

KRPF will begin its phased roll out of the body cameras and provide access to Axon Evidence to all the 14 communities of the Nunavik region. Axon Evidence allows agencies to view, sort, tag, manage and securely share digital evidence with crown prosecutors and courts.

“The Kativik Regional Police force is proud to partner with Axon in the deployment of body-worn cameras in all 14 communities of the Nunavik Region. We strongly believe that this new partnership will have great beneficial impact on the trust and confidence of the Nunavimmiut towards our police service,” says Kativik Regional Police Force Chief Jean-Pierre Larose.
