SCOTTSDALE, Ariz: Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, announced Cincinnati Police Department (Cincinnati PD) as the first major city agency to receive shipments of the Axon Body 3 next generation body-worn camera as part of the Officer Safety Plan 7+.
The Axon Body 3 camera is deeply integrated with Axon Evidence (Evidence.com) and Axon Records to provide a seamless, end-to-end workflow by allowing officers and investigators to quickly incorporate all video footage, photos, documents and citizen-captured evidence into the official police record, helping agencies quickly create a comprehensive view of a police incident. Axon Records allows agencies to streamline the report writing process so they have more time to spend in their community. The system is fully configurable so agencies can create custom forms, workflows and work-groups to meet their specific needs. Axon Standards, a module within Axon Records that Cincinnati PD has already deployed, provides agencies a highly efficient experience for use-of-force reporting and other agency workflows.
Axon Standards has made a huge difference in the amount of time my staff spends creating reports, says Cincinnati PD Police Chief Eliot Isaac. We are seeing exceptional benefits with how body camera footage can be directly embedded in our use-of-force, officer accident, citizen complaint and other internal reports. We're excited to begin the transition to Axon Body 3 as we are not only able to capture clearer evidence than ever before, but we are also ensuring the safety of our staff with real-time notifications and alerts.
Axon Body 3 is LTE-enabled and designed for officer safety with expanding capabilities like critical evidence previews, prioritized wireless upload capabilities and more. The camera was built to help officers capture the truth, act on real-time awareness and take back time. The camera also includes improved low-light image clarity and audio technology. Agencies that sign up with Axon's hardware and software platform — including Axon Body 3 and Axon Records — are put on a path toward a future vision where the cameras automate transcription and automatically feed information into Axon Records.
Axon will be featuring Axon Records and Axon Body 3 and its real-time capabilities this week in Chicago at the 126th annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference at Axon's booth number 2211.
