Lake Havasu Becomes First Agency to Fully Deploy TASER X2 and
Funded Entire Department With TASER Equipment Combining TPP and TAP
SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- TASER (NASDAQ: TASR)
today announced a significant TASER(R) X2(TM) Conducted Energy
Weapons (CEWs) and AXONFlex on-officer camera order using the new
TASER Protection Plan (TPP) and TASER Assurance Plan (TAP) by Lake
Havasu Police Department (AZ). This is a full deployment of 92 X2s
for all of its sworn and detention officers and 58 AXONFlex cameras
for 58 sworn field personnel. The order to bring them to full
deployment status was received in the fourth quarter of 2012 and is
anticipated to ship in the 1st quarter of 2013.
The Lake Havasu Police Department is the first law enforcement agency
to fully deploy both the new X2 and AXONFlex technology to its agency
using the unique TAP and TPP options.
The TPP payment program allows agencies to pay for equipment over a
5-year program, allowing customers to budget more predictably and
support full deployment of our latest technology. It provides for
budget certainty, upgrades technology without the time constraints
associated with capital acquisitions, locks in current pricing, and
The TAP is a warranty/replacement program that allows the agency to
maintain its current X2/Flex program worry free with a no questions
asked warranty including on-site spare equipment so officers
experience zero downtime. It also refreshes an agency's entire
arsenal of related equipment after the fifth year.
The TPP/TAP combination (the first program of its kind) allows
agencies like Lake Havasu to go 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agencies upgrade outdated technology while staying within limited
"One of the most exciting aspects of this new program was that it was
outlined and proposed by our customers at Lake Havasu," said Rick
Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. "Over the past several years, we
have focused great effort on developing a rigorous
Voice-of-the-Customer program to help us better understand our
customer's needs. I'd like to personally thank Lake Havasu for having
the vision to put elements from several programs together in a unique
way to create a predictable and sustainable program across multiple
product and service offerings. We are now looking at how we can take
the innovative approach proposed by Lake Havasu to assist other
agencies across the country."
