Expanding the Axon ecosystem
The loss of life and the injuries of others during the tragedy in Atlanta have no place in our communities, where people should feel — and be— safe in public.
Real-time crime centers like Fusus offer an unprecedented opportunity to increase safety in any moment, in every environment. They provide a “single pane of glass” to monitor active incidents by integrating live video footage and other data points from various locations within a community. With Fusus, hospitals, schools, retail stores, houses of worship, event venues and residential communities — whole cities and towns — are better protected and, importantly, can contribute to greater safety for everyone.
That’s why Axon recently acquired Fusus and is so optimistic about the promise of more robust real-time intelligence. Together, Fusus and Axon usher in a new era of public safety that strengthens Axon’s ability to deliver on its mission to protect life, capture and preserve truth, and accelerate justice.
Axon's extensive network of public safety products already includes groundbreaking connected cameras like Axon Body 4 and Axon Fleet 3, life-saving de-escalation tools like TASER 10, real-time collaboration tools like Respond, and an open ecosystem of integrated partners. Adding Fusus to the Axon suite radically expands and deepens these real-time capabilities. It immediately gives public safety agencies the ability to access with permission CCTV camera feeds, including those maintained by the community, to see events unfolding with greater context and clarity.
These centers also have the ability to integrate and connect a wide range of sensors and data sources, including fixed, body-worn, fleet and ALPR cameras; gunshot detection sensors; social media feeds and more, to provide a comprehensive and immediate view of ongoing criminal activities or emergencies. Ultimately, by aggregating all of this information into a single pane of glass for public safety, real-time crime centers enhance situational awareness, improve response times and support proactive crime prevention efforts by leveraging up-to-the-minute information and analytics. This information can then be quickly and easily shared between collaborating agencies, ensuring accelerated justice for all involved.
