Law Enforcement Associates Introduces Line of Digital Audio Products

New Suite of Digital Transmitters, Receivers and Repeaters Opens Door to Large End Markets

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Law Enforcement Associates Corporation (LEA) (OTCBB: LAWE), a leading U.S.-based developer and manufacturer of electronic surveillance equipment, today introduced its PDT Digital Audio product offering, a new line of radio frequency (RF) transmitters, receivers and repeaters designed for the law enforcement industry.

Jay Becker, LEA's sales manager, said, "Our PDT Digital Audio suite represents a significant technological advancement for LEA, and allows us to target a broad range of federal agencies, task forces and high profile law enforcement organizations. We believe this product line establishes LEA as the only U.S.-based manufacturer of a fully digital audio product offering. Given the U.S. Government's emphasis on procuring American made products, as well as our very competitive price point and our extensive menu of disguised digital transmission devices, we believe we have established many important advantages over our competitors."

Becker added, "Many law enforcement agencies are moving to digital audio technology from the legacy analog format. We therefore believe there is a large and untapped market opportunity that we intend to aggressively pursue."

Mark White, senior vice president of technical operations, said the Company's digital product offering provides a range of benefits to both LEA and its customers. "The digital format is less susceptible to interference and allows for more secure audio transmission."

White said independent labs are completing the final phases of compliance testing on the products, and the Company expects to begin taking orders for the PDT line next month.
