On February 17th 2022, Audax Body Worn cameras were featured on France’s popular TF1 at Lunchtime. The piece showed how they are being used by the Police Municipale of LE BARCARÈS,  which is in the Sud de la France.

Take a look below at a rough translation of the report…

  • The cameras are clearly visible to the members of the public.
  • After giving a warning, they are easy to turn on with a press of the front button.
  • In summer our population goes form 6,000 to 100,000 and with all of the tourists the “problems” increase.
  • The camera is very reassuring for us the police and supports us to evidence our professionalism.
  • It allows us to show our actions are easily justifiable.
  • The cameras are fully supported by the inhabitants.
  • 1st interview -They provide reassurance.
  • 2nd Interview – They should have been actioned a long time ago. Allows us to see things differently and decrease petty crime.
  • The cameras cover a full shift of 8 hours and on return to the Police station the videos are immediately downloaded onto the server via the docking station.
  • The docking Station is for downloading the video and for recharging the batteries.
  • The Police officers do not touch or see the videos everything is automatic and very transparent.
  • The Police Officers have no access to the images. They can’t see them and thus can’t alter them.
  • Videos are kept for 6 months and can be used in court if required.

Supporting those in the Armed Forces community is at the core of Audax culture, and it is great to see our team playing their part. Mike Pitt, an Audax Company Director and Veteran Submariner is a Volunteer Guide for H.M.S. Courageous.

The Courageous Volunteer Guides (CVGs), who are a group of former Royal Navy personnel, provide visitors with an in-depth tour of Courageous and the Submarine Service. As the name suggests, they are all volunteers and receive absolutely no payment for the work they do.

These volunteers give up their time to provide tours to Officer Cadets & Officer Training Courses, Submarine Advisory Group, RN trainees from different areas, not least from the Submarine Training School in HMS Raleigh. Other visitors to the site include: Officer Cadets, Officer Training Courses, Submarine Advisory Group, Cadets / Sea Scouts and others from Industry such as Babcock.

Since 2002, HMS Courageous has been open to visitors as a “Submarine Museum” and provides a fascinating glimpse into the operational world of the ‘Silent Service’. In 2012, Courageous celebrated 10 years’ service as the only nuclear submarine on public display in the United Kingdom and one of only 2 in Europe. It’s so popular that in 2019 they received just under 3,000 visitors.

Audax are proud to support veterans and the armed forces community both within business and the wider community. Our dedication to this cause is further cemented by our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant and the Employer Recognition Scheme.
