TASER International, Inc. announced several recent orders for its new TASER X2 electronic control device (ECD) TASER CAM HD recorders.

The following orders were received during the second quarter of 2012:

  • Michigan Department of Corrections: 143 TASER X2 ECDs with TASER CAM HD recorders
  • Hammond (Ind.) Police Department: 50 TASER X2 ECDs with TASER CAM HD recorders
  • Stoughton (Mass.) Police Department: 45 TASER X2 ECDs with TASER CAM HD recorders
  • Fort Smith (Ark.) Police Department: 11 TASER X2 ECDs with TASER CAM HD recorders

The TASER X2 was launched in 2011 as TASER's next-generation ECD. It provides second-shot capability, charge metering for improved safety, Trilogy logs with detailed firing and electrical pulse information, automatic shut-off ability, compatibility with TASER CAM HD high definition color video camera system, and free data upload access to TASER's Evidence.com secure, cloud-based data storage and management solution service, according to the company.

"We believe that on-officer video systems significantly enhance the relationship of trust between public safety agencies and the communities they serve," said Rick Smith, TASER's CEO. "We are seeing accelerating adoption of our video systems, including the new TASER CAM HD recorder.  We believe on-officer video technology is reaching a tipping point, becoming a strategic focus of the public safety community in efforts to control costs while delivering better, more transparent service."
