The Axon Body Workforce features the hardware of Axon body cameras alongside the company’s real-time capabilities and simple evidence management workflows, making it easier to act on captured footage, Axon says.

Benefits of Axon Body Workforce for retail and hospitality security include:

  • Deterring and de-escalating incidents: the camera protects employees by capturing high-quality video evidence of employee-customer interactions, while also respecting their privacy. With a simple double tap activation that is lightweight for wearing, employees can ensure all critical moments are recorded by Axon Body Workforce
  • Supporting in real-time: the solution equips employees with a communications beacon to protect themselves with situational awareness, allowing for quicker and more effective interventions. Axon Respond’s live capabilities enable employees to ask for help in the moment, while having a camera present encourages better behavior and discourages crime in the workplace
  • Promoting transparency: the camera manages high-quality, easily searchable footage in Axon Evidence to gain transparency into all interactions. The solution has the capability to upload, manage and share footage internally and externally with law enforcement and District Attorneys to ensure teams are staying safe and to expedite the path from incident to adjudication. Furthermore, this evidence can uphold internal standards, clear up claims or disputes and build a library of in-field footage for ongoing training

“Public safety is about just that – people feeling and being safe in public, including while at work,” said Axon CEO and Founder Rick Smith.

“That’s why Axon Body Workforce is so critical to our mission to protect life.

“It marks a new chapter in body-worn cameras, built to address the workplace violence affecting frontline workers.”
