TASER International Receives Follow-On Orders From Florida and Ohio Agencies

October 08, 2007  | 

TASER International, a market leader in advanced electronic control devices, today announced that it received significant follow-on orders from two large law enforcement agencies. The first order received was from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office in Jacksonville, Fla., for 450 TASER X26 Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) and related accessories. The second order received was from the City of Cleveland (Ohio) Division of Police for 175 TASER X26 ECDs.

"We are very pleased with these follow-on orders from these two progressive law enforcement agencies," commented Tom Smith, Chairman and Founder of TASER International. "We believe that the expanded deployments of TASER devices at these agencies will result in fewer injuries to officers and suspects and will serve as a valuable tool at the patrol level to protect life."

These orders were received and will ship in the Fourth Quarter of 2007.

I am a deputy in Washington County, OH, and we have used tasers for several yrs. in both patrol and corrections. I believe they are one of the most valuable tools we have and would not want to be without them. Our administration is very supportive of their use. We recently began carrying the taser X-26 in the Jail. We previously had them available, locked up. We would have to get them out before responding to an incident. We now have them on person, which I believe greatly adds to officer and inmate safety. Someone might say if you are carrying the taser it can be taken from you. Sure, but the worse case scenario is that it is shot at you once, and you recover. It can then be used only as a stun gun. Overall we and the inmates are safer with the taser being carried by officers. On patrol many officers and arrestees alike have been spared injury by the use of the taser.
