Truckee Police Department Deploys AXON Flex On-Officer Cameras to All Patrol Officers

AXON Flex Cameras to Replace Dash Cams

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 6, 2013) - TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today announced that the Truckee Police Department is deploying 28 AXON Flex™ on-officer cameras with five years of EVIDENCE.com service to all of its patrol officers. The acquisition includes both the EVIDENCE.com service and the TASER Assurance Plan (TAP).

The TAP is a warranty/replacement program that allows the agency to maintain its current Flex program worry free with our world-class service program and integrating warranty coverage including on-site spare equipment so officers experience zero downtime. It also replaces an agency's entire inventory of covered equipment after the fifth year.

The TAP allows agencies like Truckee to reach full deployment with full protection over the program's service life, while making five low annual payments. This effort reinforces TASER's commitment to helping agencies upgrade outdated technology while staying within limited capital budgets.

"We are pleased to be moving away from our fixed in car cameras to the AXON on-officer system," said Truckee Police Chief Adam McGill. "Having a realistic recording from the officer's perspective has proven time and again to enhance accountability of all those present in that law enforcement encounter. In addition, our IT staff is pleased with the backend support provided by EVIDENCE.com -- reducing our support staff time," concluded Chief McGill.

This order was received in the second quarter and is expected to ship in the second quarter.
