"We live in a world of digital media, and cameras have become commonplace," said Captain Cory Rubright. "With the deployment of body-worn camera technology in the communities we serve, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office looks forward to maintaining an atmosphere of transparency and trust. While the cameras provide an enhanced means of evidence collection, they also provide increased accountability and we are anticipating positive results with this program."
"We strongly believe that every police officer should have access to a body-worn camera and the safest option available when use of force is necessary in the field," says Rick Smith CEO and co-founder of TASER. "TASER's Officer Safety Plan furnishes officers with unique resources and support that helps make their jobs easier and the lives of those they serve safer. By opting for unlimited data storage and Smart Weapon upgrades, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office is promoting a work environment defined by safety and efficiency."
The Officer Safety Plan includes all of the advanced features of Evidence.com, unlimited storage for body camera video, a service plan that includes automatic upgrades of the Axon cameras every 2.5 years and upgrades of the associated TASER devices every five years, as well as full hardware equipment warranties and service.
