Scottsdale, Ariz.-based TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR ) says its AXON on-officer flex camera is a hit.
On Wednesday, TASER announced that the Fort Worth Police Department in Texas has deployed 145 AXON flex cameras to its force, while the DFW International Airport Department of Public Safety in Texas has deployed 100. Law enforcement agencies at Barton Community College, the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office, the Comfrey Police Department, and Kankakee County Sheriff's Office have all renewed their subscriptions to TASER's associated EVIDENCE.com service.
Additionally, TASER announced that law enforcement agencies in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas are deploying either AXON flex cameras or EVIDENCE.com for their officers.
In a related announcement, TASER says that the Surprise Police Department in Arizona has just announced that it will be equipping all of its police officers with both the AXON flex and the EVIDENCE.com service.
The AXON flex is a digital video camera worn on an officer's body that TASER CEO Rick Smith says "will become standard equipment [at police forces] within the next 5-10 years." EVIDENCE.com is a service TASER offers for recording and storing video recorded by the AXON flex.
