Second Canadian major city agency to join the Axon network; 49 North American major cities now deploying Axon technology
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2019 /CNW/ -- Axon, the global leader in connected public safety technologies, and its subsidiary Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., today announced that York Regional Police (YRP), a Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) member, has joined the Axon network with the purchase of 270 Axon Fleet in-car video systems and 1,800 licenses to the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence (Evidence.com). This order was received in the third quarter of 2019 and will begin shipping in phased deployments in the fourth quarter of 2019.
All in-car cameras being deployed by YRP are backed by Axon's Technology Assurance Plan with unlimited storage on Axon Evidence. Axon Evidence modernizes outdated processes for agencies as it allows them to view, sort, tag, manage and securely share digital evidence with crown prosecutors and courts. YRP is also deploying Axon Citizen for Communities, a public evidence submission portal that allows agencies to collect evidence from the public during both large-scale and smaller, day-to-day events, and Redaction Assistant, Axon's artificial intelligence (AI) powered productivity tool built to increase efficiency for agencies that currently spend up to eight hours manually redacting each hour of video footage.
"This technology provides a robust and secure platform for York Regional Police to better manage digital evidence and take the next steps in modernizing our police service," says York Regional Police Chief Eric Jolliffe.
"We're excited to expand our partnership with York Regional Police as they invest in a technology platform to help their frontline members," says Axon's Managing Director, Canada & Latin America, Vishal Dhir. "By taking full advantage of time-saving features on the Axon network such as Axon Capture, Axon Citizen and Redaction Assistant, YRP is empowering their officers with the latest technology to support their efforts - and ultimately build trust within their community."
