SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Axon (Nasdaq: AXON), the global leader in connected public safety technologies, today announced that São Paulo State Military Police (PMESP) has equipped 2,500 officers with Axon Body 3 cameras backed by the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence (Evidence.com). PMESP is the first police agency in Brazil to adopt technology that integrates body-worn cameras with an end-to-end cloud-based evidence management platform.
The São Paulo State Military Police is the largest law enforcement agency in Brazil, with more than 90,000 officers in total. Over the past seven years, the PMESP has been studying the use and benefits of body-worn cameras, also known as Portable Operational Cameras, in partnership with other pioneering security forces from all over the world. Axon was selected after an international bidding process in late 2020 and full operational deployment of the 2,500 body-worn cameras was successfully concluded in May 2021.
«We are proud to offer our police officers the most advanced equipment available on the market today,» says Colonel Francisco Cangerana, Director of Technology of the São Paulo State Military Police. «This project is part of a larger police technology modernization program led by the Directorate of Information Technology and Communication (DTIC) and positions São Paulo on the same level as the most technologically advanced police forces in the world.»
Colonel Robson Cabanas, Manager of the body camera project at the São Paulo State Military Police, highlighted some of the key features that the agency is most excited about for this deployment. «São Paulo will be the first user of the ‘Video Recall’ function in body-worn cameras worldwide, allowing the police leaders to review evidence after any incident, even if the camera was not activated. This will enable even more transparency and accountability of the police force.»
«We are thrilled to partner with the São Paulo State Military Police to implement the largest body-worn camera and digital evidence management solution in Latin America to date,» says Axon’s Managing Director, Canada & Latin America, Vishal Dhir. «This latest procurement demonstrates PMESP’s ongoing dedication to leveraging the latest technology to increase officer and community safety, putting them at the forefront of public safety technology.»
The PMESP is also the largest state agency in Latin America to outfit officers with TASER devices or Neuromuscular Incapacitation Weapons, as they are categorized by the Brazilian Government, deploying additional units of Axon’s TASER X2 devices at the end of 2020.
