Body-worn cameras, a police officer tool for safety. We believe if there were more statistics available, it would help law enforcement officers decide to implement the use of body-worn cameras in their departments.
We met with Steve Ward is the CEO and founder of VIEVU. Vievu has since merged with Axon, one of the country’s largest dashcam and body cam manufacturers. Mr. Ward worked as a police officer in Seattle for 13 years, including 6 years on the SWAT team. Afterward, Mr. Ward became the Vice President of Marketing and International Sales for Taser International. He has an MBA from the Edinburgh Business School, a Certificate from the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon.
Steve Ward founded VIEVU in 2007, which manufactures high definition, wearable video cameras for law enforcement and private professionals. These camera systems have become necessary when considering the liability present in law enforcement, and also provide strong evidence for use in court.
