Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD Provides TASER X2 To Entire Force

October 05, 2011  | 

The city of Charlotte became the first major city to equip its officers with the TASER X2 electronic control devices (ECDs) for all patrol officers, according to a release from TASER International.

Charlotte's City Council unanimously approved the largest order of X2s to date, including 1,600 of the new TASER X2 ECDs equipped with the new Auto Shut-Down Performance Power Magazine (APPM), extended warranties, 7,400 TASER cartridges and related accessories. The devices shipped in the third quarter.

"At the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, we have a deep commitment to enhancing the safety of our community and our employees," said Chief Rodney Monroe.

In addition to upgrading to the TASER X2, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has also engaged the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) to perform a review of the department's policies, procedures and training on ECDs.
