The Culture At Axon

Information provided by the company
What makes Axon a great place to work?
Axon is uniquely positioned to help drive social justice reforms through technology. Technology alone can't solve systemic racism, but we believe it has a huge role to play. Most studies have shown that body-worn video positively affects de-escalating situations and reduces the use of force while increasing transparency. - Body cameras can capture truth and provide transparency where there was none before. - Signal technology, along with the power of AI, can ensure cameras are always on when they?re supposed to be. - Live-streaming video combined with other real-time situational awareness data and a re-imagined 911 experience can get the right help to the right place with the proper oversight faster than ever before. -Virtual reality empathy training can help officers put themselves in others? shoes and be better equipped to listen and de-escalate before acting. -Citizen portals to securely share footage captured by peaceful protesters can create a direct and constructive connection between communities and the agencies sworn to protect them.
