DOJ Pilot Program allows ATF to manage and store digital evidence captured from Federally Deputized Joint Task Force Officers within Axon Evidence
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, today announced that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will equip agents and investigators with the Axon Investigator suite of solutions, which includes Axon Body 3 cameras, backed by Axon Evidence (Evidence.com), a FedRamp-Authorized cloud-based digital evidence management solution available to federal law enforcement. Axon will support the ATF pilot initiative with a 12-month indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. This order was received in the fourth quarter of 2019 and will ship in multiple phases throughout 2020.
Many state and local law enforcement agencies require all officers to wear body-worn cameras whenever the use of force is a possibility. These agencies have requested body cameras to also be present during joint task force operations with federal government officers. To address this need, the DOJ announced in October that it would begin piloting body cameras for the first time.
“Axon is proud to support the DOJ in its body camera pilot effort,” said Axon Federal Vice President and General Manager, Richard Coleman. “Our federal customers serve the critical mission of ensuring the safety and security of the American people. We look forward to joining forces with more federal agencies and equipping those who serve with the latest technology to ensure officer safety and transparency.”
