SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR) today announced the Manchester Police Department (NH) has placed an order to deploy 250 new TASER® X2 electronic control devices (ECDs).
"We saw the continued success of other law enforcement agencies using the TASER ECD to apprehend dangerous subjects and its outcome of decreasing officer and suspect injuries," said Manchester Police Chief David Mara. "I feel it's a much needed officer safety tool."
