First UK police force to deploy Axon's public evidence submission tool agency-wide
LONDON and SCOTTSDALE, Arizona, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies and its United Kingdom subsidiary, Axon Public Safety UK Limited, today announced Cumbria Constabulary as the first police force in the UK to roll out Axon's public evidence submission tool, Axon Citizen for Officers. In addition, Axon announced the order of 610 Axon Body 2 and 90 Axon Flex 2 cameras by Cumbria Constabulary, all backed by the digital evidence management platform, Evidence.com. This order was received and shipped in the first quarter of 2018.
Axon Citizen for Officers enables police forces to securely receive and manage one-on-one submissions relating to a specific crime. Individuals receive a URL via text message or email that they can click to upload their photos or video footage. The files are uploaded directly into Evidence.com so community members do not need to hand their phones over to police.
"We've heard from officers at our police force that Axon Citizen for Officers is one of the best additions to their tool kit," said Cumbria Constabulary's Superintendant Matthew Kennerley. "One of the immediate benefits we've experienced in rolling out this technology is eliminating the need to download, print, or physically store pieces of video and photo evidence."
Axon is expanding the Citizen offering with the release of Axon Citizen for Communities later this year. This product provides polices forces the ability to create public portals for collecting community-wide evidence on a specific crime or incident. Learn more by visiting http://uk.axon.com/citizen.
