Title

Memorandum
The attached resolution requests approval to issue a purchase order to Axon Enterprise, Inc. for the purchase of new body worn cameras (BWC) and evidence management system. Our existing L3 BWC's have been failing at a high rate over the years prompting us to look for a replacement.

The Police Department and Information Technology evaluated solutions from Motorola, Watchguard, ProVision, and Axon. As a result, we recommend the Axon solution because the city already utilizes their Taser devices, Washtenaw County switched from L3 to the Axon BWC's Evidence Management System and have experienced very few issues and this will provide mutual aid for sharing, and Lansing and Grand Rapids employ Axon. In addition, Axon is the only solution that can provide features such as multiple automatic camera triggers on multiple cameras, easy link sharing system with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office, live view stream to a mobile phone, auto tagging so data can be exchanged with our CAD vendor CLEMIS, and immediate viewing of video on a mobile phone. The CAD integration will lead to a reduction in hours for our Records department to search evidence for FOIA requests.
