Cumbria Constabulary opts for Axon’s evidence submission tool
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Axon and its UK subsidiary Axon Public Safety UK, have announced that Cumbria Constabulary is the first police force in the UK to roll out the company’s public evidence submission tool, Axon Citizen for Officers.

Cumbria Constabulary also ordered 610 Axon Body 2 and 90 Axon Flex 2 cameras. This order was received and shipped in the first quarter of 2018.

The company claims that Axon Citizen for Officers enables police forces to securely receive and manage one-on-one submissions relating to a specific crime. Individuals receive a URL via text message or email that they can click to upload their photos or video footage. The files are uploaded directly into so community members do not need to hand their phones over to police.

Axon is expanding the Citizen offering with the release of Axon Citizen for Communities later this year. This product provides polices forces the ability to create public portals for collecting community-wide evidence on a specific crime or incident.

"We've heard from officers at our police force that Axon Citizen for Officers is one of the best additions to their tool kit," said Cumbria Constabulary's superintendant Matthew Kennerley. "One of the immediate benefits we've experienced in rolling out this technology is eliminating the need to download, print, or physically store pieces of video and photo evidence."
