Victoria Police Purchase 11,000 Body Cameras
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 | Comments

Victoria Police in Australia purchased 11,000 Axon Body 2 cameras and a five-year subscription to the Axon cloud solution. The order was received in the first quarter and will begin shipping in the second quarter.

Victoria Police will begin a staggered rollout of the body cameras in April with the goal of outfitting all frontline police officers with cameras by 2020. The rollout will commence with an initial pilot at two police stations as part of Victoria Police's response to the Family Violence Royal Commission. The goal is to capture victim and perpetrator statements of family violence-related crimes more immediately by the first officers responding to the scene. The immediacy of these testimonies could help improve the overall judicial process by reducing the time victims need to spend in court.
