7. Thanks.

I just searched the NYT site for Safariland and Vievu.

Only one story since the one you linked to. So, nothing reported since Feb 2017.

Very low bid. Startup company (though purchased by a large corporation in business for more than 50 years). It's unclear whether that $6.4 million contract was for an initial 1,000 cameras, or for 5,000 cameras. It's interesting/odd that there were no reports, at least in the NYT, on the deployment and use of the cameras, whether they meet the 2013 federal mandate, etc. No interest? No whistleblower? And why no nagging by Taser for expediting the investigation, etc.

As I noted in my first post, the cynic in me is still screaming that something smells. I'm reminded of that 9-figure contract initially awarded to a 2-man startup in Montana in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
