Audax Global Solutions Ltd – a specialist company at the forefront of Body Worn digital evidence gathering technology, today announce that they have been awarded a contract, with their partner company, to supply Body Worn Systems / Head Cameras to the French Police and Gendarmes.
Following a European Competitive Tender and evaluation of numerous products, the Audax Solution, based on the eWitness product, was selected for its superior quality, resilience and innovative features. The Contract is for 2 years and the initial purchase, which Audax are currently in the process of delivering, is for 600 Systems.
Having been involved in the UK pilot for Police use of Headcams in 2005/6, Audax have worked closely with numerous Police Forces and agencies and have had input into the development of the eWitness System which exceeds all the desirable features of the UK Home Office Guidance.
“Our Product is the only system that offers the user the choice and flexibility of being a body cam or a headcam” says Mike Pitt, a Director of Audax “With various mounting options provided; this enables the system to be used in many more scenarios”.
He goes on to say “Our solution can be used by officers on foot, in vehicles, Public Order duties or even on Horseback, with the cameras being adjusted to suit the officer’s role rather than just the chest worn solutions that often have their camera lens being obstructed”. “The solution is built around a solid state HD recorder with an HD Camera and it can record everything the Officer can be expected to see and hear”.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which we believe to be the largest single order of these types of systems from a Police Force in Europe to date”
