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.

This weekend is a time for the people of Plymouth to come together to remember the end of WWII.

This is a special occasion for so many of our team, which is made up of many ex-service people, as are most of our contractors and consultants too. In fact, in recognition of our support to the defence community, Audax were proud to have been awarded the Silver employer recognition scheme Award of the Armed Forces Covenant.

As a local business, with headquarters in The Millfields, Plymouth, we want to do what we can, not only to commemorate the incredible sacrifices of our armed forces, but also to support our neighbours, friends and family here in Devon. That’s why we’re proud to be sponsoring this event – Plymouth Remembers.

Starting with a Memorial service at Minster Church of St. Andrew, members of the public are then invited to let their hair down and celebrate with some great music, just as the good people of Plymouth did 76 years ago on Sunday 15th August.

Entry costs only £3.00 to come along to the Guildhall to hear the great voices of some amazing acts. This is such a small cost to be entertained by those who have performed in packed out theatres, West End shows by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and on glamorous cruise ships around the world.

What’s happening?

  • 13:30 – F.E.P.O.W Families lay crosses and wreaths outside of St. Andrews followed by the Lord Mayor of Plymouth and the Military representatives.
  •  14:25 – Arrival of Deputy Lieutenant of Devon for the start of the service.
  •  16:00 – End of service and the Deputy Lieutenant of Devon will lay the alter wreath at the Rowan Tree before heading off to the Guildhall. 
  • 16:20 – Public entry to the Guildhall for the start of the celebration until 21:00

If you’re local, you may also have spotted posters for the event in local shops and supermarkets around the city centre, or even through your post-box in the Plymouth Links.

We’d also like to thank COFEPOW for their support, a global charity dedicated to perpetuating the memory of the Far East Prisoners of War who have shared the event through their website and publication. (https://www.cofepow.org.uk/news/plymouth-remembers-vj-day-75th-1)

We believe actions speak louder than words, which is why we are sponsoring the remembrance of these brave people who helped shape our City for what it is today.
