Audax®, the world-leading pioneers of body-word video technology are continuing their fight against aggression towards law enforcement and emergency service personnel by once again sponsoring the SPOED 112 Anti-Aggression Symposium, taking place on 27th October 2021 in Antwerp, Belgium.

With a worrying trend of increasing hostility, aggression and violence towards the police and emergency services workers in Brussels, the UK and further afield, SPOED 112 alongside headline sponsor Audax® are hosting their annual symposium, focused on raising awareness of their anti-aggression campaign, as well as championing solutions that counter violence within this industry.

The full-day event, which is set to take place at the Provincial House in Antwerp Belgium, will see a line-up of influential speakers, stands and demonstrations of the Audax Body Worn Video (BWV) technology. The event hopes to educate and arm individuals, with the aim of combatting the worrying aggression phenomenon.

Appropriately retained as the headline sponsor, Audax BWV technology offers solutions that are proven to mitigate the risk of aggression and violence within the law enforcement and emergency services sectors – and its requirement is increasing. As highlighted in the latest issue of SPOED magazine, further sectors are now showing an interest in using BWV technology thanks to their broad range of applications.

In addition to police, ambulance workers and fire services, the technology can also be used for public transport, event security and military personnel. The primary reasons for using body worn cameras are 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.  It also improves policy and transparency in terms of relationships with the public, while also reducing offender complaints and speeding up the administration of justice.

As the prime sponsor, Audax are keen to play an active role alongside SPOED 122 to ‘aid those who help us’ in the UK, Belgium and across Europe. Adam Liardet, Founder and Owner of Audax said, “We have long been committed to protecting the emergency services sector against aggression and abuse. No other company has been as active as Audax® in trying to stamp out this ‘horrific plague’ of behaviour in Belgium and even globally, and we are proud to once again support an initiative that we are truly passionate about. Furthermore, the use of body worn cameras promotes transparency and openness, which inevitably leads to improved officer performance and increased public confidence in national policing.”

Audax are looking forward to supporting the SPOED 112 symposium on 27th October 2021 at the Auditorium Provinciehuis Antwerpen. More information about the event can be found at:

Audax Global Solutions Ltd, world leaders in pioneering body worn video (BWV) technology, today announced that it had received notification that it will receive an order to provide 20,000 Audax® Bio-AX® cameras to a national police force. The roll-out of body worn cameras, valued at approx. £13.2 million ($17M / €15.2M), ranks as globally significant and is expected to start in December 2021 with final delivery completed by May 2022.

The Cameras will be deployed to assist in the Government’s aim to modernise policing, assisting with border protection and assisting security operatives dealing with organised crime. Adam Liardet, Founder and Owner of Audax said, “The use of body worn cameras promotes transparency and openness, which inevitably leads to improved officer performance and increased public confidence in national policing. We are privileged to be chosen to assist and look forward to working with our local assembly partner for further projects in the region.”

Audax will be working alongside their in-country technology partner to manage the deployment. This partner will be assisting in the final assembly of key components of the Bio-AX® system in country, with support provided directly by the Audax team. This collaborative approach will provide skilled jobs to locals in the region and facilitate the transfer of technical skills.

The rugged, all-in-one, Bio-AX® camera is designed to protect both the police and the public with its intuitive recording function and live streaming of securely encrypted video. The camera’s internal GPS provides location on the video and live asset tracking is possible via mapping in the control room. A unique innovation of the Bio-AX® camera is the ability for staff in the control room to turn on the live stream remotely. This feature not only provides managers with visibility and situational awareness of their assets ‘on the ground’, but also ensures complete oversight for compliance and professional standards. These features make Bio-AX® a valuable tool to ensure professionalism. The product offers superior battery technology, which provides world-beating live streaming and recording durations.

Once completed, this will be the latest in a series of global body worn camera deployments, with both public authorities and law enforcement. Additional deployments include: 8000 cameras to Vietnam, numerous Councils and private security firms in the UK, a large volume of local police users in France and other users in several EU nations as well as the USA.

Audax is looking forward to sharing further details of this exciting project in the coming weeks.

Speaking of the company’s sponsorship, Managing Director Adam Liardet said: “Audax is delighted to be a silver sponsor of BAPCO 2021: The Online Event. British APCO is a key event in our calendar as the customer and partner interaction it provides directly supports our commitment to innovation and British manufacturing.

“With Spring approaching and the successful rollout of vaccines offering an imminent exit from the enforced ‘hibernation’ we have all been subjected to, we believe that BAPCO: The Online Event will offer the perfect platform for the sharing of information and experiences gathered over the past few months. These experiences are critical in the development and cultivation of ideas in the often fast- moving sector of public safety.”

While Audax will be physically exhibiting at the Annual Conference and Exhibition later this year (12th and 13th October), BAPCO: The Online Event will provide a focus point for those within the public safety to gather and share points of view. It is only by working together that the industry will be able to respond to this ever-changing environment and the unique challenges faced by the public safety community.

Audax® body worn cameras have been used by emergency service and security professionals across the globe from our first industry pioneering days in 2005. The new Audax® Bio-AX® camera has been designed and built with the core customer base at its heart and was launched in late Autumn 2020.  Bio-AX® can be remotely commanded to record and live stream video and audio, along with GPS location, from the control room.  This not only provides managers visibility and situational awareness of their assets on the ground, but it ensures complete oversight for compliance and professional standards. That’s why Bio-AX® is a valuable tool to ensure safety, security and professionalism.
