4Sight Labs' innovative OverWatch™ system made waves at Axon Week 2024 with live demos, a presentation, and success stories from law enforcement.


4Sight Labs made a significant impact at the recent Axon Week 2024, held from April 22-26 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The company showcased its state-of-the-art OverWatch™ system at booth #40, allowing attendees to experience live demonstrations and learn how this innovative technology can enhance detainee wellness while reducing agency liability.

OverWatch is a comprehensive monitoring system designed to address the wellness and safety of individuals in the custody of law enforcement agencies, jails, detention centers, and correctional facilities. By leveraging advanced sensor technology, OverWatch provides monitoring, enabling staff to respond to potential health crises and prevent in-custody incidents proactively.

One of the key highlights of 4Sight Labs' presence at Axon Week 2024 was the presentation by CEO John DeFalco, titled "It Just Makes Sense: 4Sight Labs and Preventing In-Custody Deaths with Sensor Technology." The session, which took place on April 23 as part of the "Technology for Good" track, delved into how next-generation sensor technology can protect life from the point of arrest to incarceration. 

DeFalco also provided insights into future integrations within the Axon Ecosystem, giving attendees a glimpse into the exciting possibilities that lie ahead.

During the presentation, Commander Shawn Laughlin from the Broomfield County Sheriff's Office in Colorado and Lieutenant Sean Elston from the Arlington County Sheriff's Office in Virginia joined DeFalco. These esteemed law enforcement professionals shared their firsthand experiences with the OverWatch system and discussed how it has positively impacted their agencies.

Commander Laughlin recounted how the Broomfield Police Detention Center had deployed the generation one system several years back, resulting in three validated lives saved. The sensor notified staff well before the scheduled safety round in each instance, enabling timely intervention. The lives saved include:

  • A male arrestee experiencing a diabetic crash.
  • Another male arrestee with known drug ingestion.
  • A female arrestee with unknown drug ingestion.

Lieutenant Elston provided insights into the implementation of the OverWatch system at the Arlington County Detention Facility, discussing the policy changes, use cases, and plans for expanding the technology's impact within their agency.

Visitors to the 4Sight Labs booth had the opportunity to witness live demonstrations of the OverWatch system in action. Product experts were on hand to answer questions, provide detailed information about the system's capabilities, and discuss how it can be customized to meet the specific needs of various custody environments.

The OverWatch system offers a range of features designed to enhance detainee safety and streamline monitoring processes. With a 14-day battery life, the system enables continuous monitoring without frequent battery replacements.
