The order is an upgrade of older TASER weapons to the X26P 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 1604 units was received in the third quarter and is anticipated to ship in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“This upgrade to our less-lethal weapons platform is part of our continuing efforts to bring new technology to the Las Vegas community, bringing greater levels of safety and transparency for both the officer and the citizens they serve,” Las Vegas Metro Police Department Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.
“We are passionate about technology that makes the world a safer place,” says Rick Smith, CEO and co-founder of TASER International.
“Our mission is to make a TASER CEW available to every officer, so they have the best options available to avoid injury or death. Our TASER 60 plan provides a new, cleaner alternative for allowing Smart Weapons to be a budgetary line item providing better financial visibility.”
