“The Minneapolis Police Department looked at a number of cameras, and tested two in a variety of officer experiences and weather conditions, which is a big factor here in Minnesota,” said Chief Janeé Harteau. “We have selected TASER and look forward to outfitting our officers with another tool that will help us increase public trust and transparency.”
“Minneapolis is making a full commitment to smarter policing, and we are absolutely thrilled to be able to help them to achieve their goals,” said TASER founder and CEO Rick Smith. “With the Officer Safety Plan, Minneapolis will be able to get the most out of their body cameras, Smart Weapons, and digital evidence management alike, ensuring that the systems they’re putting in place now will remain relevant for many years to come.”
