Company offers body cameras to every cop in the US

Company offers body cameras to every cop in the US

"When I say 'Taser, ' you immediately think about stun guns, electrical weapons".

Dyer said TASER had a virtual monopoly on electric weapons and had already sold body cameras to most of the big police departments that have made a decision on the technology.

The company cited a study by the Pew Research Center that found most officers are dissatisfied with how their departments hold underperforming officers accountable.

Formerly Taser International, Axon is embroiled in a heated battle with rival Seattle company Vievu to provide body cameras to law-enforcement agencies around the country. Smith said that filming incidents in high-definition video can also serve as a way of protecting officers that fall under pressure for using their weapons.

The cameras have the "potential to change police work as we know it", according to Axon, as well as protect officers and their communities, through collection of unbiased records.

Axon invites all providers of body cameras to join in this effort and provide free trial equipment for public safety agencies.

If every officer was equipped with a camera, it would eliminate the need for such thorough and time-consuming police reports, many of which are handwritten, and would help streamline communication, Axon's news release said.

"Our core goal is to have every officer in the world carry a TASER, deploy an Axon camera and be connected to the Axon network", the company said in its annual report previous year.

"There's something like a 15 to 1 return on investment for us by letting customers try this because ultimately, this is a network play", Smith told "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer on Wednesday.

"We really pivoted to this idea of a connected device ecosystem", Smith said.
