Audax BWV technology is proven to mitigate the risk of aggression and violence within the emergency services. In addition to police, ambulance and fire services, the technology can also be used for transport, event security and boarder and customs personnel. Primarily BWV is used to increase the safety of frontline workers by deescalating confrontations and for the gathering of impartial, accurate evidence that can be used to educate, inform or prosecute. BWV also improves transparency in terms of relationships with the public, while also reducing offender complaints and speeding up the administration of justice.
