Swedish Police Authority becomes the first European national police force to join the Axon network
One-thousand Axon body cameras to be deployed following 18-month field trial.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Axon, the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, today announced that the Swedish Police Authority has contracted with Axon Public Safety Germany SE, a subsidiary of Axon, for a roll out of 1,000 Axon body cameras. The initial order will include 950 Axon Body and 50 Axon Flex cameras. This order was received and shipped in the fourth quarter of 2018.
In addition to the body camera order, the force will also deploy Axon Commander, Axon's on-premises data management solution. The software will also be integrated with Milestone Systems' world-leading open platform XProtect IP video management software, so that all video evidence captured by the Swedish Police Authority can be seamlessly managed.
"Law enforcement in Sweden is handled by a central authority, similar to many European nations. We are excited to have the first European national police force on the Axon network," says Ronald Richardson, Axon Country Manager Sweden. "Axon's body cameras offer law enforcement around the globe technology to enhance transparency and trust in their communities. Rolling out Axon Body and Axon Flex cameras will allow the Swedish Police Authority to more efficiently collect evidence so they can better serve and protect their communities."
