Axon CEO and founder Rick Smith will announce the new products to a sold-out audience of around 3,000 global law enforcement professionals on Saturday, October 6th at the House of Blues, Orlando, Fla.

"Since the launch of our first TASER device, public safety officers have saved more than 200,000 lives from death or serious injury using TASER conducted energy weapons in situations where lethal force could have been used instead," says Smith.

Axon will showcase its new products at the IACP Axon booth, October 7-9.
