TASER received the first pre-order from the Mesa Police Department (AZ) for 50 AXON™ Flex™ on-officer cameras with 1 year EVIDENCE.com™ storage and management service was received from the Mesa Police Department (AZ).
The second pre-order received is from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office (LA) for 20 AXON Flex on-officer cameras with a three year EVIDENCE.com™ storage and management service contract.
“As evidentiary technologies evolve, so do the expectations of the judicial system and the community,” said Frank Milstead, Chief of the Mesa Police Department. “It is imperative law enforcement keep pace with these expectations. The AXON platform provides our officers the safest and least intrusive system to obtain, provide and store such evidence.”
“Mesa Police Department is widely recognized as a thought leader among major law enforcement agencies – and we are delighted they have selected the AXON Flex on-officer cameras as the video platform to protect their officers,” said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER International. “We are also grateful for Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, a forwarding looking agency with more than 300 employees, for taking a technology leadership position as the first significant deployment of the new Flex camera in the state of Louisiana. We believe the new Flex cameras will provide a significant return on investment for their communities while improving transparency.”
