The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office in Florida will be upgrading its Axon patrol car cameras.
The new Axon Fleet 3 cameras will replace Axon Fleet 2 models and include livestreaming upon activation, auto-activation at high speed or crash, integrated license plate readers, a dual-view front camera, panoramic and standard images, color infrared rear cameras, 24-hour video recall, emergency light activation, wireless microphones, and improved atomic time sync for playback.
The Axon software has also been upgraded, allowing for citizen submission, unlimited data storage, shareable data to the state attorney’s office, and multi-camera playback.
“We started implementing the Axon Fleet in 2018 and over the years we have upgraded the Axon Body Camera systems,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “This upgrade now takes us to the next level of transparency and provides a safety net for deputies in critical situations. The Axon Fleet 3 enhances our existing [license plate recognition] LPR technology making every marked patrol car a moving LPR system enhancing our ability to fight and reduce crime and apprehend offenders before they can prey on our community using today’s cutting edge technology.”
The total cost of all of the upgrades, which included new body camera systems, was $469,164.41.
