Green Bay Packers Fund Axon Body-Worn Cameras for Local Police
Wednesday, December 16, 2020 | Comments

Axon supplied the Green Bay Police Department with Axon body-worn cameras, in-car cameras and Taser devices. The Green Bay Packers football team made a financial contribution to the police department to help fund the program as part of the team’s ongoing pledge to support social justice and racial equity in Wisconsin.

The police department will receive 190 Body 3 cameras, 45 Axon Fleet 2 in-car cameras and 150 Taser devices, as well as a five-year subscription to the Officer Safety Plan 7+. The plan includes access to a wide range of additional software products such as Virtual Reality Empathy Training, Axon Records, Axon Performance, Redaction Assistant and Axon Citizen for Communities.

In response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, earlier this year, the Packers have worked to promote meaningful dialogue between police and communities and are driven to help improve public safety.

“As an organization, we are committed to using our platform and providing resources to help achieve racial equity and social justice,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “In conversations with our players, community partners and elected officials, we determined that supporting this purchase would complement our many other efforts to address injustices in our communities of color. The cameras will also help the police perform their duties more effectively and benefit the local community. We are proud to be working with Green Bay and Axon to bring this technology to our city in order to enhance public safety and affect meaningful change.”

“We’re excited to work with the Packers and the Green Bay Police Department to reach one common goal: protecting life,” said Axon CEO and founder Rick Smith. “It’s inspiring to partner with organizations across industries to make a real change when it comes to racial equity, diversity, and inclusion in our society. Body cameras are a critical component of transparency and performance in law enforcement and we believe this technology can help bridge the relationship between police and communities.”
