To date, over 50 agencies in Canada are now using TASER 7, keeping both officers and communities safe
CALGARY, ON and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (Nasdaq: AXON), the global leader in connected public safety technologies, and its subsidiary, Axon Public Safety Canada, Inc., today announced that several major agencies across Canada will deploy TASER 7 devices to officers across the country as a part of an ongoing effort to better serve their communities. According to reports from police services in Ontario including Toronto, simply presenting a TASER device de-escalates a situation between 70% to 90% of the time, without having to deploy a cartridge, which leads to safer interactions for all involved.
Significant TASER 7 orders were received from the following Canadian agencies in Q2 and represent only those agencies granting permission to be named:
- Calgary Police Service- 1,000 TASER 7 devices on the TASER 7 Certification Plan
- York Regional Police - 290 TASER 7 devices on the TASER 7 Certification Plan
Agencies throughout Canada are turning to the TASER 7 as an effective way to de-escalate situations, including Peel Regional Police, Toronto Police Service and Edmonton Police Service who all have joined the Axon Network and deployed TASER 7 within their communities.
"We are humbled to see agencies across Canada expanding their TASER programs," says Vishal Dhir, Senior Vice President, Americas. "Axon's latest and most advanced energy device, the TASER 7, is a critical de-escalation tool to help keep both officers and communities safer. By adopting these devices, these agencies can continue to make positive impacts in the communities they serve with safer outcomes."
The TASER 7 is the most effective TASER device yet, with services that are seamlessly integrated into Axon Evidence. By leveraging Axon's TASER 7 Certification plan, these agencies will receive TASER 7 devices, holsters, rechargeable batteries, instructor training, end-user training and access to ongoing online training content.
