TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR) today announced the receipt of an order for a total of 900 TASER® X2™ Smart Weapons for the Kentucky State Police. The order is an upgrade of older TASER weapons to the new X2 Smart Weapon using the new TASER 60 annual payment plan that provides warranties and on-site spare equipment for these devices throughout the five-year period. The order for 900 units was received and shipped in the third quarter of 2016.

"We believe the Kentucky State Patrol is making an important move toward a world where every officer has the best technology and training to minimize the chances of a deadly encounter," says Rick Smith, CEO and co-founder of TASER International. "Using our TASER 60 plan provides a new, cleaner alternative for allowing Smart Weapons to be a budgetary line item providing better financial visibility. It also fulfills our mission to make a TASER CEW available to every officer, so they have the best options available to avoid injury or death," concluded Smith.
