Taser International (TASR) said Wednesday that it's officially changing its name to Axon, and it's offering free body cameras to every police officer in the U.S.

In 2015 Taser announced it was splitting its brands, Axon served as the umbrella brand for the company's body camera, digital evidence management software, and other projects.

"We believe these cameras are more than just tools to protect communities and the officers who serve them. They also hold the potential to change police work as we know it, by seamlessly collecting an impartial record and reducing the need for endless paperwork. That's why we're giving this opportunity to every single police officer in America," Axon CEO Rick Smith said.

The stock was up slightly on Wednesday afternoon.
