Digital Ally Receives DVM-500 Plus Order From State Police Under New Statewide Contract With Kentucky

Two Other States Place Orders for DVM-500 Plus In-Car Video Systems Under Statewide Contracts

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced that it has been awarded a statewide contract by the State of Kentucky.

The one-year contract includes an option for renewal in four one-year increments by mutual agreement. The contract allows for all state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies in the State to purchase Digital Ally in-car video systems and related products at pre-negotiated prices. Coincident with the awarding of the contract, Digital Ally received an order from the Kentucky State Police for 16 DVM-500 Plus digital in-car video systems.

The Company also announced that it has received a reorder from the Mississippi Highway Patrol for 100 DVM-500 Plus systems, bringing the total number of in-car video systems purchased by the State's highway patrol department under the terms of a statewide contract with Digital Ally to over 400 units. The Michigan State Police has also placed initial orders for DVM-Plus 500 systems, as authorized under a previously announced statewide contract that was awarded to Digital Ally earlier this year.

"As we noted in an investor conference call on May 11, 2011, the number of orders received under statewide contracts during the first quarter of 2011 was disappointing, but we had been informed by several states that orders were under consideration and would likely be forthcoming soon," observed Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "Today's announcement of orders from three law enforcement agencies under statewide contracts is very encouraging and will hopefully be followed by orders from additional states in coming months."
