Brevard County Sheriff's Office and West Palm Beach Police Department Adopt TASER 7 Technology to Protect Their Communities

24 Jan 2019

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected public safety technologies, today announced the receipt of significant orders for its TASER 7 Conducted Energy Weapons (CEWs). These orders were placed in December 2018, will ship in multiple phases, and represent only those agencies who granted permission to be named.

The TASER 7 is the most effective TASER weapon yet, with services that are seamlessly integrated into Axon Evidence. All TASER 7 units ship with battery docks that recharge the batteries and upload weapon usage data to Axon Evidence, similar to the "dock and walk" system that agencies deploy with Axon body cameras.

"Equipping our deputies with this next generation TASER weapon provides them an important less-lethal option to help de-escalate situations that could otherwise end in tragedy," said Sheriff Wayne Ivey of Brevard County Sheriff's Office. "Protecting our citizens and our deputies is the single most important thing we do and this new generation of TASER weapons is vital to their safety."

"In Coral Gables we continue to evaluate officer safety and look at the latest technologies," says CGPD Chief Edward J. Hudak Jr. "We believe this will be cutting-edge technology for years to come; therefore we're moving forward with the TASER 7 to save lives of both officers and people that we have to take into custody."
