Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Purchase AXON Flex On-Officer Cameras
Third major city to adopt AXON Flex cameras with EVIDENCE.com service
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - TASER International, Inc., today announced an order by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Department (Pa.) for 50 of TASER’s new AXON™ Flex™ on-officer cameras with three years of full service EVIDENCE.com management solution including software maintenance, hardware warranties and updates.
“The TASER AXON Flex On-Officer cameras will be a very valuable tool for both officer safety and citizen encounters,” said Chief Nathan Harper of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Department. “In the ever changing world of technology this tool will not only serve as a training aide for demonstrating real-time recordings but will enable the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to provide an even higher quality of service to the citizens that we serve.”
“We are thrilled with the addition of another major city’s decision to deploy AXON Flex cameras at the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Department,” said Rick Smith, founder and chief executive officer of TASER International. “As a technology leader in law enforcement, Pittsburgh is now the third major city law enforcement agency to deploy Flex cameras with our EVIDENCE.com back-end solution along with Ft. Worth, Texas and Mesa, Ariz. police departments. This system can supplement their in car video recorders with a flexible system that can be used for motorcycle officers and in unmarked cars. Flex cameras enhance risk management and protect officers with the preservation of invaluable evidence which enables a new level of trust and transparency between the public safety community and society as a whole,” concluded Smith.
This order was received and expected to ship in the third quarter of 2012 and includes three years of EVIDENCE.com service.
