The widespread adoption of in car video systems is a testament to the value of video footage in daily police work. But as the diagram above shows, the dash camera is only able to capture about 10% of the area. If a situation were to occur near the car, only having access to 10% of the story is detrimental to the safety of an officer. TASER has introduced the AXON on officer video system to combat this weakness in police video
In addition to providing a more complete view of the situation, the video is shot from the officers point of view. In car camera systems can sometimes be detrimental to officers as they show a different viewpoint of a situation or miss it entirely. Having the officers point of view recorded with a head camera can be used to justify officers actions based on how a situation appeared to them.
With AXON Flex on officer video systems police departments have an invaluable tool backed by the trusted name of TASER.
