Axon to provide free body cameras to ‘every police officer in America’

Axon, formerly known as Taser International, has announced a program to provide free body cameras to “every police officer in America” this week.

In addition to the body cameras, Axon has said that it will provide hardware, software, data storage and training to the police officers.

Baltimore County police had already signed multimillion-dollar contracts in order to provide their police force with body cameras, so it is not clear how this announcement will affect them.

“We are continuing to explore those options with Axon,” said Baltimore Police spokesman Detective Jeremy Silbert.

However, spokesman Steve Tuttle said that the company has a plan in place for existing customers such as the Baltimore police force and that “we are also offering current customers to get sufficient discounts that are the equivalent or better to get a free year of Evidence.com [digital evidence management solution]. We knew this offer was coming and we made appropriate accommodations.”
