U.K. Police Agency Implements In-Car Cameras

4th Jun 2019

Dyfed-Powys Police is the first U.K. police force to deploy Axon's in-car camera technology. The force is rolling out Axon Fleet 2 across 31 vehicles including armed response and traffic vehicles. The order for this five-year contract was received in the first quarter of 2019 and shipped in the second quarter.

The cameras allow Dyfed-Powys police officers to download vital video evidence directly via a wireless system. The video evidence is transferred to Axon's digital evidence management system.

"The introduction of in-car video within our fleet here at Dyfed-Powys Police means that officers now have yet another pair of eyes at scenes of road traffic collisions and other incidents, live time evidence of motoring offences and evidential footage during pursuits," said Catherine Davies, project manager for Dyfed-Powys Police. "This technology further improves accountability for us as a service and helps to protect our officers during often vulnerable times, when transporting prisoners and patrolling our many, many miles of road alone."
