Axon announced the purchase of 100 Axon Fleet in-car video systems by the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), 600 systems by the Fort Worth Police Department (FWPD) and a full deployment of 1,600 systems to the Louisiana State Police (LSP). FWPD and NOPD, both members of Major Cities Chiefs (MCC), placed orders in Q1 and 2 of 2017 respectively, with systems shipping in multiple phases through 2018. The order for LSP, a state and provincial agency, was placed in Q3 and will ship in segments in Q4 2017 and Q4 2018.

Axon has received more than 200 orders for Axon Fleet since its launch in Q2, 2017.

Other significant orders include:
• Baton Rouge (Louisiana) Police Department: 425 systems
• Forsyth County (North Carolina) Sheriff's Office: 150 systems
• Richland County (South Carolina) Sheriff's Office: 300 systems
• Grand Prairie (Texas) Police Department: 185 systems
• Glendale (Arizona) Police Department: 150 systems
• San Marcos (Texas) Police Department: 115 systems

"Connecting mobile devices and wearables to the cloud is comparatively simple, but connecting entire patrol cars to the entire Axon network is a huge step forward for our technology," said Axon CEO and founder Rick Smith. "Axon Fleet represents more than just a new tool in an officer's toolkit; it's an embodiment of the idea that connectivity can be achieved seamlessly and efficiently in the name of protecting life. In-car video will never be the same."

Axon Fleet lets users capture and upload video footage to the company’s Evidence.com. It is cloud-based, which eliminates the need for DVRs and other outdated, bulky hardware by offering a streamlined, connected approach to sharing critical video evidence.

Other features and benefits of Axon Fleet include:
• During critical situations, officers in the field or at the station can gain immediate access to evidence after uploading video via LTE from anywhere. They can also upload video via Wi-Fi or the Axon dock.
• Axon Fleet allows officers to always have the latest technology by swapping clunky hardware for the Axon View XL mobile data terminal (MDT) application, which receives over-the-air software upgrades.
• Whether it's body-worn or in-car footage, officers are able to play back up to four videos simultaneously on one screen on Evidence.com to see the event from multiple angles before sharing evidence.
• Axon Fleet includes Axon Signal technology, which reports events, like when an officer opens the car door or activates the light bar, the camera can detect them and start recording.
