Shining a spotlight on the amazing feats undertaken every day by law enforcement officers across the country.

At Axon, we're incredibly proud to have so many heroic partners doing incredible work in the world, and we felt the need to recognize them. We're excited to announce that we will again be recognizing standouts from law enforcement with our RISE Awards ceremony at Axon Accelerate 2019.

The RISE Awards seek to honor those in law enforcement who save lives, lead by example, and find innovative solutions to pressing problems. Prizes include Axon technology grants and a trip to attend 2019 IACP Conference in Chicago, IL.

"Each year the RISE Awards showcases the extraordinary courage, ingenuity, and compassion demonstrated by officers and agencies across the country," said Axon CEO and founder Rick Smith. "Our hope is that the stories of heroism and valor we receive about officers in the United States and Canada inspire others as much as they inspire us."

For this past year's RISE Awards at Accelerate, we were honored to recognize members of the LVMPD for their heroic actions during the tragic Mandalay Bay mass shooting that took place just over a year ago. Click or tap the link below to hear their story.
