Our Team

Today, public safety officers spend up to 2/3 of their time on the job filling out paperwork (sometimes with paper, sometimes with floppy disks). Not only is this tedious for officers, but the never-ending pile of paperwork reduces the amount of time they can spend out in the field, protecting their communities. Axon Records cuts down on paperwork so that officers can spend more time prioritizing the safety of our communities.

Imagine the year 2030. Advanced technology has automated more and more routine tasks to put officers back in the community, dramatically improving the quality and safety of our lives. Public safety officers have everything available at their fingertips- empowering them to seamlessly connect the dots and get the answers they need when they need them to most effectively protect life.
