Digital Ally Awarded Statewide Contract With West Virginia

December 30, 2013  | 

Digital Ally today announced that it has been awarded a "sole-source" contract with the state of West Virginia to supply in-car video systems and related equipment to the state's highway patrol department.

The initial one-year contract, which was effective December 15, 2013 and includes a provision for two one-year renewals, authorizes the purchase of Digital Ally's in-car video systems, particularly the DVM-750, for installation in state trooper vehicles. The West Virginia State Police, which includes more than 600 sworn officers, operates and maintains an active fleet of more than 500 cruisers throughout the state. The Company expects to receive a significant purchase order from West Virginia in the first quarter of 2014 for the initial deployment of DVM-750 units and anticipates that the state will attempt to deploy in-car video systems in its entire fleet of vehicles during 2014 and 2015.

"This represents the 26th state contract our company has received for in-car video systems and/or LIDAR speed enforcement products and the fifth 'sole-source' contract involving in-car video systems," says Stanton E. Ross, chief executive officer of Digital Ally. "The contract allows all other agencies, spending units, and political subdivisions within the State of West Virginia, including state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies, to buy Digital Ally's in-car video systems at the same prices and on the same terms as those made available to the state police. In our experience with similar state contracts, many other state, county, and local agencies take advantage of this provision to acquire our in-car video systems, since the State Police have already tested and selected our systems over competitive offerings.

"We believe that our success in obtaining and renewing state contracts indicates that our company's revenue will continue to benefit from U.S. police market demand for in-car video over the near, intermediate and long term. We are currently pursuing at least two additional state contracts and the extension or renewal of several others," concludes Ross.
