SEATTLE, Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon, a business unit of TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR) and the global leader in body cameras and digital evidence management tools for law enforcement, has launched #WhyIServe, a campaign aimed at celebrating individuals who are making a difference in their communities through service. Strong, safe communities depend on the active involvement and commitment of many who choose to serve, from police officers to teachers to community volunteers. The campaign is timed with the holiday season and seeks to promote greater understanding of the impact of service.
The feature story for the #WhyIServe launch focuses on a county sheriff's deputy from outside of Seattle, Washington. Deputy Ricardo Cueva shares his inspirational story, explaining why he tries to help his community as a police officer. Other stories include local heroes from Washington, DC to Dallas, Texas. More stories can be found at whyiserve.co.
"We are launching #WhyIServe to promote understanding of the critical impact service has on making our communities safer and better," said Luke Larson, President of TASER International. "By sharing stories of individuals who dedicate their lives to service and focusing not just on what they do, but why they do it, we hope to celebrate their work and inspire others to serve."

- Go to whyiserve.co to learn more about the campaign
- Choose your favorite social channel (FB, Twitter, or Instagram)
- Post a photo along with a story (as little as 1 sentence or as much as a novel) about why you serve
