When a Crisis Hits: The Importance of Media Training

Information moves fast—your response has to be faster. That’s why media training is critical to responding effectively to crisis situations. In this day and age, information is instantaneous and media consumers get immediate news coverage from their TVs, computers, and phones. To ensure that your response can be just as immediate as the news coverage itself, it’s crucial that you and your agency have the best possible preparation for media interaction, questions, and interviews already established. How will you respond during a crisis? And how can Axon help?

Searching Downstream: The Prosecutorial Utility of Body Cameras

One of the most logical ways in which body cameras are able to help law enforcement agencies, is by documenting incidents and subsequently using the recordings to arrest, prosecute and convict suspects. Yet, there is hardly any evidence of the prosecutorial utility of Body Worn Video. Join us to discuss the research that is being done.

Fighting Domestic Violence with Body-Worn Cameras, Queensland Police Service (AUS)

Research has shown that 1 in 4 women in Australia have experienced physical or sexual violence from a partner while in a relationship. While law enforcement agencies across Australia respond to 5,000 domestic and family violence per week, most abuse is under reported and under-prosecuted. To combat this pressing issue, the Queensland Police Service created a Domestic Violence Task Force supported by body-worn cameras. Come and hear how successful this Accelerated evidence trial was and how QPS was able to increase charges related to arrests and convictions.
