SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today announced the receipt of an order for a total of 1,210 TASER® X26P™ Smart Weapons for the Georgia Department of Community Supervision. The order for 1,210 units was received and is anticipated to ship in the third quarter of 2016.
"We are committed to embracing technology solutions that enhance our ability to carry out our mission," said Scott Maurer, Assistant Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Community Supervision. "Our X26P Smart Weapon order upgrades our department with improved technology that increases transparency and improves public safety by reducing the risks faced by our dedicated officers and the offenders we serve. The X26P also enhances our core value of accountability with improved analytics of weapons usage including an in depth analysis of the weapon's performance and the recording of every trigger activation and a pulse-by-pulse record of the charge output," added Maurer.
"We are dedicated to developing technology that makes the world a safer place," says Rick Smith, CEO and co-founder of TASER International. "Our mission is to make a TASER CEW available to every officer, so they have the best options available to avoid injury or death. When we built the TASER Smart Weapon, our engineers had three thoughts in mind: safety, accountability, and performance. The Georgia Department of Community Supervision has upgraded to an all-digital Smart Weapons platform that provides the ability to regulate charge output, perform health checks, update firmware over the web, and provide analytics displaying how and when someone uses a device."
