SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, today announced that its new program to equip every law enforcement officer in America with a free body camera for a one-year trial has generated interest from hundreds of police agencies across the U.S. In addition to the Axon Body 2 camera, the offer also includes unlimited data storage and supporting hardware, software, and training. Due to high demand and to share further insight on how to take advantage of this game-changing opportunity, Axon CEO and Founder, Rick Smith, will host a webinar tomorrow, April 20, 2017, to share more information on how to sign up.
On April 5, 2017, we changed our name from TASER International to Axon. The name change reflected the company's ongoing commitment to innovating new technologies needed to shape the future of policing. In the spirit of that commitment, the company simultaneously announced its intention to give every police agency in the country the chance to trial its body-worn cameras, digital evidence management system (Evidence.com), and mobile applications for free for one year. Since then, hundreds of police departments across the country have contacted the company expressing interest in the free trial.
"The response to this new program has, so far, been overwhelmingly positive," said Smith. "It's heartening to see that, when budget concerns and other roadblocks are stripped away, many law enforcement agencies share our vision for the future of police work. We hope that this webinar will help ensure that anyone who wants to try out our technology has the ability and knowledge necessary to make it happen."
Sign up for the webinar on Thursday, April 20 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET here: https://www.axon.com/trial-webinar
