TASER International Receives Follow-On Orders from Law Enforcement Agencies
Las Vegas Metro Police Department and An Overseas Purchase
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 16, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- TASER International, Inc. (Nasdaq:TASR), the market leader in advanced electronic control devices, today announced that it received two significant orders from law enforcement agencies. The first order received was from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in Las Vegas, NV, for 300 TASER(r) X26(tm) Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) and related accessories. The second order received was from several law enforcement agencies within a foreign country for a total of 200 TASER(r) X26(tm) ECDs and related accessories.
"We are pleased to see these two orders, from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police and the overseas order," commented Tom Smith, Chairman and Founder of TASER International. "The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department continues to expand its TASER program to get more TASER units to the patrol level officers which continues the patrol level expansions that we have seen over the past several years with major agencies. The foreign order follows a continued expansion from the successful deployments of our TASER technology in that country. We anticipate that the growing number of TASER devices being used may result in fewer injuries to officers and suspects, reduce excessive use of force claims, and serve as a valuable tool throughout these agencies to protect life," concluded Smith.
The two orders were received and will ship in the first quarter of 2008.
