Greensboro Police Department Expands Deployment With 170 AXON Cameras

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/18/13 -- TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today announced multiple new deployments of its AXON flex™ on-officer cameras and service. The Greensboro Police Department (NC), which deployed 125 AXON Flex cameras earlier in 2013, is expanding their body worn video program with an additional order for 160 AXON flex cameras, 10 AXON body ™ cameras and a 3-year program. These orders were received in the third quarter and are expected to ship in the third quarter.

The Greensboro Police Foundation, a non-profit formed in 2012 by local business and community leaders, raised funding to support the deployment of body worn cameras to protect the officers of the Greensboro Police DepartmentThe Greensboro Police Department and the Foundation undertook an innovative fund raising campaign including prominent billboards and a media campaign with local television and print media to garner public support for the campaign.

"Police organizations today must deploy technologies that promote effectiveness, efficiency and public confidence," said Greensboro Chief of Police Ken Miller. "Body-worn video systems accomplish all and help raise the bar on officer performance. Our latest acquisition of the AXON flex cameras, mounting options and service enables us to equip all 500 of our field-based officers and tactical units with body worn video cameras covering all shifts. There simply is no substitute for the coverage and benefits that these systems provide, and I predict they will become standard equipment issue in all departments over the next 3-5 years."
