TASER International Inc. has received an order from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) for 2,748 TASER X26 ECDs and related accessories.

The Texas DPS will issue the TASER X26 to its state troopers, making this order the fourth largest deployment of TASER ECDs in the U.S., the company announced.

"We're confident that deploying our TASER technology will provide a safe and effective use of force option," said Tom Smith, chairman and founder of TASER. "This order provides the people of Texas and other law enforcement agencies they assist with enhanced accountability measures, product effectiveness, as well as a return on its investment by reducing injuries to officers and suspects, reducing excessive use of force claims and saving lives."

More than 475 law enforcement agencies in Texas now deploy TASER ECDs. The order is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2010.
