Durham Regional Police Service First in Ontario to Pilot Axon Mobile Application to Capture Digital Evidence in The Field

Police Service to Leverage the Canadian Cloud, Evidence.com, to Store and Manage Digital Evidence

DURHAM REGION, Canada and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 11, 2016 /CNW/ -- Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., a subsidiary of TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR) and the global leader in digital evidence management solutions with the leading body-worn camera, today announced that the Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) is the first Ontario police service to pilot Axon Capture and Evidence.com. The pilot is designed to improve how the agency captures, stores and manages their digital evidence in the field.

"Digital evidence management is a major issue for all police services in Ontario and across Canada," said Chief Paul Martin. "We have been looking for an innovative solution that would improve how we capture evidence such as still photos, video and audio statements. After conducting research for a solution we are pleased to have selected Axon Capture from Axon Public Safety Canada for a pilot through the remainder of 2016. Axon Capture provides us both the flexibility and ease of use we were looking for at a reasonable price," concluded Chief Paul Martin.

"Durham Regional Police Service is well known in the Canadian law enforcement community for their information management leadership," said Axon's country manager, Vishal Dhir. "This is an invaluable pilot opportunity for Axon as this program provides DRPS the opportunity to help improve officer efficiency in today's mobile world."

DRPS will leverage the Axon Capture mobile application and Evidence.com in a pilot program between now and the end of 2016. A report will follow upon completion of the pilot for DRPS executives to review.
