York Regional Police (YRP) has joined the Axon network with the purchase of 270 Axon Fleet in-car video systems and 1,800 licenses to the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence (Evidence.com).
Axon will begin shipping the in-car video systems in phased deployments in the fourth quarter of 2019.
All in-car cameras being deployed by YRP are backed by Axon’s Technology Assurance Plan with unlimited storage on Axon Evidence. Axon Evidence modernizes outdated processes for agencies as it allows them to view, sort, tag, manage and securely share digital evidence with crown prosecutors and courts.
YRP is also deploying Axon Citizen for Communities, a public evidence submission portal that allows agencies to collect evidence from the public during both large-scale and smaller, day-to-day events, and Redaction Assistant, Axon’s artificial intelligence (AI) powered productivity tool built to increase efficiency for agencies that currently spend up to eight hours manually redacting each hour of video footage.
“This technology provides a robust and secure platform for York Regional Police to better manage digital evidence and take the next steps in modernizing our police service,” says York Regional Police Chief Eric Jolliffe.
