Axon has announced that the Puerto Rico Police Bureau has adopted the Axon Body 4 body-worn cameras.

According to the company, this expansion follows the successful deployment of Axon Body 3 body-worn cameras and Axon Fleet 3 in-car cameras for first responders last year.

This latest deployment follows public policy issued by the Governor of Puerto Rico, Hon.

Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia and the directives set by the Secretary of the Department of Public Safety of Puerto Rico, Alexis Torres Ríos, in August of 2022 to deploy body-worn cameras as a part of a long term modernization strategy.

According to Inspector Noel Méndez Rivera, Assistant Secretary for Operations and Intelligence, Department of Public Safety, Axon was selected due to the efficient live-streaming functionality, geolocation and automatic activation with Axon Signal technology, as well as security and chain of custody of its body-worn cameras.

Enhancing public safety with Axon

“We are thrilled to partner with the Puerto Rico Police Bureau as they continue to enhance their public safety solutions to protect their communities,” said Vishal Dhir, Axon’s Senior Managing Director of Americas.

“This latest procurement demonstrates their ongoing dedication to leveraging the latest technology to increase officer and community safety, putting them at the forefront of public safety technology and continuing the expansion of modernized public safety tools across the Americas.”

Last year, Puerto Rico Police outfitted officers with Axon Body 3 body-worn cameras and Axon Fleet 3 in-car cameras, which were met with positive reception from both community and officers alike.
