Axon, a business unit of TASER International and a global leader in digital evidence management solutions with the leading body-worn camera, has announced the purchase of 963 Axon Body 2 cameras by California’s San Jose Police Department. San Jose PD secured a five-year subscription to Evidence.com on the Unlimited license tier.
This order was received in the second quarter and will be shipped in phases through the end of 2016.
"This is such an exciting moment for us, and we’re really looking forward to working with these devices," said San Jose Chief of Police Edgardo Garcia. "We’ve seen the results that body cameras have yielded in other cities and we can’t wait to see how this next generation of cameras builds upon those results.""We are thrilled and humbled to have been selected by the San Jose Police Department after an extensive field test of eight body worn camera brands," said TASER CEO and co-founder Rick Smith.
"The Axon Body 2 improves upon its predecessor in a host of ways and we are thrilled to see it make its way into the hands of San Jose’s officers, where we have no doubt that they will pave the way for more efficient police work. Our team has worked really hard to develop this technology for the heroic men and women of law enforcement, so it’s exciting to know we will be supporting them in the heart of Silicon Valley."
