Axon announced that Cancom Security Inc. joined the Axon network by purchasing Axon Body 3 (AB3) cameras and licenses to the digital evidence management solution, Axon Evidence.
With over 1,200 security guards nationally, Cancom shared in a company statement that it is one of the first security companies to start equipping security guards with body cameras in the Ontario region with plans to add more in 2021.
“Selecting Axon as our partner and rolling out the AB3 to our frontline guards demonstrates our on-going commitment to further advancing the private sectors position while aligning ourselves to support our local police services with seamless support in evidence retention, gathering and continuity,” said Cancom’s Founder and CEO Ron Wells in a prepared statement. “More specifically, leveraging this emerging technology is a valuable training tool to teach our security guards appropriate conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques while holding them accountable to provide a best in class service to our clients.”
“We are excited to partner with Cancom as they lead the way with an implementation of connected body cameras and innovative technology for the private sector,” said Vishal Dhir, Axon’s managing director, Canada & Latin America. “By taking full advantage of the Axon network, Cancom is creating a seamless partnership between private security and law enforcement for sharing evidence to ensure transparency and continuity.”
