"In today's challenging economic times, it's important for law enforcement to justify every purchase," said Rick Smith, CEO of TASER International, in a release. "We understand the struggles agencies face in keeping equipment up to date. To assist these agencies, we recently extended our ECD upgrade at $250 per unit through June 2012 to ensure their officers have state-of-the-art equipment to maximize their safety."
