Axon Police Body Camera
The state of the art units from Axon will be the culmination of a long term process and one of the priorities of Chief David Rosado since he took office last year.
Dash cams for all Patrol vehicles will be phased in as Stage 2 of the process, as new vehicles are outfitted and equipped for the HPD Fleet. Phase 2 is expected to begin in April or May of 2019
The body cameras will download recorded video once they are placed in the docking/charging stations at Police Headquarters and it is anticipated that cruiser cams will download their video once they park in the lot at Police Headquarters.
As new Tasers are replaced for Officers, they are also expected to be incorporated into the system to automatically begin recording on body cams and cruiser cams whenever they are unholstered, the recording will be triggered on any camera in a roughly 60 foot radius for numerous video angles.
The units will record and store both audio and video of incidents for storage
