The Chandler (Ariz.) Police Department purchased TASER X2 electronic control devices (ECDs) under a company trade-in program expiring at the end of the year, according to TASER International.
The Chandler PD ordered 342 TASER X2 ECDs with extended warranties and 2,544 TASER cartridges in an order placed via ProForce Law Enforcement, a long-time TASER distributor in the Western U.S. The devices will ship before the end of the year.
"With this purchase, Chandler PD becomes one of the largest deployments of the TASER X2 in Arizona," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. "Taking advantage of our limited-time trade-in program provided Chandler an economical means to upgrade all its officers form the TASER X26 to the new TASER X2."
The trade-in program allows agencies to receive a $300 per unit trade-in credit towards the purchase of a new TASER X2. The traded-in ECD can be functioning or not.
