Alberta police service is first Canadian force to trial Axon's in-car camera system


Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., a subsidiary of Axon Enterprise Inc. has today announced that the Medicine Hat Police Service (MHPS) of Alberta, Canada will pilot Axon Body 2 body cameras, Axon Fleet in-car cameras and the Canadian cloud-based digital evidence management solution MHPS is the first police force in Canada to use Axon Fleet in the field.

The six-month long pilot begins this month and allows MHPS to utilize a wide range of Axon’s cloud-connected devices. Goals of the pilot program include:

  • Enhancing the collection of evidence;
  • Enhancing transparency, public trust and confidence;
  • Enhancing officer accountability and professionalism;
  • Protecting officers from unfounded allegations of misconduct; and
  • De-escalating volatile situations.

“The Medicine Hat Police Service has been researching how we capture, manage and share all forms of digital evidence for some time,” said MHPS Chief Andy McGrogan. “Based on our extensive research, we are excited to have the opportunity to leverage state-of-the-art technology from Axon Public Safety Canada, at no cost. I truly believe that we need to continue to be innovative in the use of technology best practices. By undertaking this exciting project we will learn a great deal and help shape the future of our information management strategy.”

“The ability for us to work with a police service as open to innovation and partnerships as the Medicine Hat Police Service is extremely exciting,” said Axon's Managing Director for Canada & Latin America, Vishal Dhir. “This pilot is a great opportunity for the Medicine Hat Police Service to explore leading edge technology and to evaluate their policies and procedures in real-world situations without any financial risk.”
