We know that officers have many things to think about while on duty. Cameras don’t need to be one of them. At LensLock, it is our Mission to make the lives of law enforcement officers easier and safer.
Our solutions make it simple and affordable for law enforcement agencies to video record encounters of their officers, safeguarding and storing potentially critical evidence as well as protecting both officers and the community.
We build innovative, cost-effective technology solutions specifically designed for law enforcement agencies, and deliver best-in-class service each and every day.
We appreciate that even the easiest-to-use technology has some learning curve, so we provide in-person training for no additional charge.
When you get a call, people expect a fast response. You can expect the same from us. You’ll have an assigned Success Officer. You’ll talk to a real person, really fast.
We hate financial surprises as much as you do. That’s why we charge a fixed fee per officer and provide a hardware guarantee for the life of your contract. You also get equipment upgrades as part of our fixed fee.
